Now a viral prayer movement that is joined by a virtuoso who from the Christian ministry joins the family as they pray for the resurrection of Olive Alayne Heiligenthal – the daughter of church members Bethel Andrew and Kalley Heiligenthal. Reportedly, little Olive suddenly stopped breathing and was pronounced dead on Saturday December 14, 2019. Andrew and Kalley shared a message on Instagram asking for prayers and Christian musicians and leaders such as Kari Jobe, Darlene Zcehech and even the American Idol finale Danny Gokey prays all for Olive to come back to life.
Some have even left messages calling it “O-Live”. No cause of death has yet been revealed. The family said that little Olive had just stopped breathing.
