On Sunday morning there was a knock on my Disciples Lodge room door. I opened the door to find Nate Marshall, director of Joy El Generation’s 4.12 Leadership Training Program. “I just wanted to make sure you heard that Miss Patti has passed on to heaven,” he informed me soberly. I nodded, having just heard the same news from my husband via text.
The entire Joy El staff had been praying for Patti Cannon since her previous visit as a summer camp speaker. We knew her time to enter eternity with Jesus was near.
