Miracle Moments
Our Guest House  

AVID AND PAULINE MAGET had traveled from their home in Missouri to Corpus Christi, Texas, where they were looking forward to celebrating their wedding anniversary. While strolling on the beach shortly after their arrival, David suffered a massive heart attack. A passerby with a cellular phone called 9-1-1 for emergency medical assistance. David was rushed to CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Memorial, where he died a few days later.

PullquoteDuring David’s hospitalization at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Memorial, Pauline and David’s mother, Ann, stayed at the CHRISTUS Spohn Kieschnick Guest House. Each morning, we shared a prayer together and a scripture of the day before Pauline and Ann would go to visit David. They believed the presence of God was here. In the weeks following David’s death, Pauline and Ann were invited to remain at the guest house to finalize their personal affairs and to recover from the shock of their devastating loss. During this time, Pauline and Ann sang the praises of the nursing staff and spiritual care Associates who reached out to them with tremendous compassion and concern.

Pauline and Ann told me they had never before witnessed such kindness as they received at our guest house. This is how we minister and touch the lives of those who stay with us. Every guest is different and has different needs, but the spirit of God gives us wisdom to speak His words at the right time and in the right way.
