So sorry to hear about Melvine.
I pray that the Lord will give her relief and strength, and lead the doctors to identify and deal with the cause of her pain.

Reading about the difficult news you and Melvine received brought a heaviness to my heart this morning. It is not the heaviness of hopelessness but the heaviness that comes when we are called to intercede. I know I am not alone in lifting you and Melvine before the healing throne of the Almighty. I have been listening to Ryan Stevenson singing "Eye of the Storm" this morning knowing you and Melvine know what it means to rest in Christ when the storms are raging. Standing with you in prayer!!

Just read this morning the account of Melvine’s ovarian cancer diagnosis. I’m in meetings in west Texas today and tomorrow (Sat/Sun) but will call as soon as I can.

Dear Hugh & Melvine,
None of know when we will hear those dreaded words, but one thing is for certain, His Word is more powerful and never dreaded. We will be praying for you all that His grace and Word will be greater in your lives than the oncology report. It’s times like now that one of the greatest words in our Christian vocabulary becomes our dearest friend -- TRUST in our God’s love and grace. We never know when His diagnosis will override our doctors. Whichever, we are in a safe place -- His hands.
Love you all,
Van and Jane
