David & Marcia - MTW Europe

David is coming to the end of an aggressive chemo part of his treatment plan and physically has done amazingly well. Pancreatic cancer and chemo has been very hard on his body. Praise God for all the extended time and reduction of the cancer this treatment has produced. Please pray for God’s guidance as David and Marcia pursue their next steps. David and Marcia also thank the Lord, for providing them with their own home in Nashville, another answer to prayer. They hope to move in around the beginning of October. Then the real chaos begins with unpacking and settling in. They are so thankful to God for his provision. David and Marcia are grateful for all your kind messages, your faithful prayers, and your continued support.

Support Needs: Because of their moving expenses to return to the US, their support account is really low right now. They plan to continue on support until September 2024 and hope to make final home assignment visits in the next year. Please consider an extra gift of financial support at this time.
