In this episode, we sit down with Chuck Konderla as he shares his testimonies with us.
Chuck walks through the stories that made him continue to trust in God’s will, and how he has managed to find peace through tribulations.
Proverbs 3:5-6 teaches us to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding; In all our ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct our paths. Hear how a believer absorbs his mom’s last words about God’s Will.

My wife and I enjoyed your interview with Chuck. As a father of four children I can only imagine the anguish he experienced as his little girl’s health failed. So glad both Chuck and his daughter are returning to good health! Great story of the peace that can be ours when we have a personal relationship with Jesus, and know we are God’s children.
Not sure if you know this, but I too successfully battled stage IV cancer in late 2018 and thru all of 2019. It was multiple myeloma, which attacked my spine to the point where I have five collapsed vertebrae. I never feared death. I didn’t barter or bargain with God. I did say, you’re will be done, if you wish I’m willing to stay here and continue to serve and glorify you. If you wish, I’ll come home. I’m still here. : ) Praise God! I will pray you continue to bless many with your new podcast Eli.
