Brenda Lee Asbill, a member of Leesville United Methodist Church, has had a wish since her cancer battle began in April 2021.
A Babcock resident and the cousin of Trudy Matthews and Frieda Wald, Asbill knows her savior, our Lord Jesus Christ. She shares Bible stories of Jesus with her housemates and has faith one day she will no longer need a wheelchair and will be walking on the streets of gold in heaven.
Recently, Asbill learned her cancer has spread to her lungs, and she is currently undergoing infusion and pill treatments. During at least three different phone conversations with her cousin Trudy, Asbill expressed her wish to go to Florida and meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse. There is no doubt the Holy Spirit was at work during each of these conversations.
Given Asbill’s disability and health struggle, God put a plan in motion in July to have Mickey and Minnie surprise and visit her right where she lives: in Batesburg-Leesville.
On Saturday, Aug. 13, with the gracious help of Mike and Paula Edwards and the support of the Challengers Sunday School Class, Mickey and Minnie came to spread joy and visit Asbill and her special friends.
As she said, “No one is going to believe this!”
Her wish came true, and their visit really made her day. Mickey and Minnie brought her Mickey and Minnie dolls to hold, cherish and forever remember this very special day.
