“Prayer is powerful,” said Sarah Decareaux after telling her story at the Second Annual Red Bud Community Prayer Breakfast, held May 3 in the auditorium at Red Bud Regional Hospital. “Even if it isn’t what you think, all He wants is a conversation.”
Decareaux, of Millstadt, has a tale of triumph over tragedy, all with a lot of prayer and influence from God.
She met her husband Dave in December 2000 and “I just knew in my spirit that he was the one.” They were married five weeks later. Their whirlwind romance continued as Dave was stationed in Portugal and then England, and they welcomed three children within three years.
After briefly leaving the military and returning to the United States, in 2008 he got a call to work in Italy. There they welcomed their fourth child. They later moved to Germany, where they had their fifth child.
