Welcome to A Willing Heart to Please the Father

I'm so glad you took the time to visit this site. It contains the amazing true life story of my dear friend Dr. Andrew C. Stenhouse, MD, whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for around twenty-eight years. He began having supernatural encounters with God at a young age, and received a very unique calling, when he heard God's audible voice to become a medical doctor. 

Because of his willing heart to please the Father, he went on to serve as a physician on four continents over a period of 55 years, published several scientific studies in various medical journals, and received numerous academic awards. He also experienced God's supernatural protection, guidance, and faithfulness, as well as unusual, divine results in the patients he cared for with a very special compassion that he had for people. His life is a living example of what it means to have a willing heart to please the Heavenly Father, which is something that's so important for all of us to have. 

His life story is told in short, fifteen-minute segments (on average), in which I interviewed him over the phone. You will find the links to each blog post below containing the transcripts and audio recordings, so that you can read along while you listen to it. You may also download the podcast, if you prefer to do so. I believe the Lord will use it to speak to your heart. Enjoy!
