I’m getting ready to leave the country, but I want to shoot you a quick update before I head out:
1. Can you believe you’ve been reading these updates for five years now? On November 1, I’ll celebrate five cancer-free years. Stastics show that people who don’t have a recurrence of breast cancer in the first five years usually don’t have a recurrence ever. So this is a big benchmark. Thanks for celebrating it with me.
2. I’m leaving for Ukraine tomorrow. I’ll be playing guitar, singing and sharing my story in a handful of churches. Please join me in praying for the people of Ukraine.
3. Baylor Magazine asked me to write a little article about myself. If you’re a Baylor alum, it should be in your mailbox soon. If you’re not a Baylor alum, you can read it here. I’m sure you won’t be surprised to find a Psalm right in the middle of it.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and encouragement throughout these five years. You’re a big part of this story.
“My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul. Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth” (Psalm 108:1-5).
