PRAY for Don and MJ. Don has just been diagnosed with cancer in his colon. They were scheduled to return to Canada in a few weeks for a period of home assignment, however, due to this recent diagnosis they are returning to Montreal this coming weekend. They have decided to do all of their treatments, etc. here in Canada and he is scheduled to see an oncologist at the McGill University Health Centre on Thursday. Don noted in his recent communications:
"The words of the old hymn keep playing over and over in my mind.
“Whatever my lot, thou has taught me to say, it is well, it is well with my soul!”
