Many of you NDs will remember the Love family, Glenn and Shirley, and their three children: Jane, Quincy and Drew. We first met Glenn and Shirley in a Bible study when I was working for the YMCA, at the home of my brother and sister-in-law, Ed and Becky Williams. The three children joined the NDs and were such a wonderful part of the group. Drew was tragically killed during his college years by a car while riding his bike (selling books door-to-door). Jane went on to become an ordained Presbyterian minister, and is still active as an interim/supply pastor in NC. Quincy is a psychologist practicing in the Atlanta area. Their Dad is 92 and continues to live in Burlington.

We have just received the following email from Quincy, now Dr. Quincy Love Warner. She has been diagnosed with stage 4 “cancer of the gut”! It originated in the appendix. During a regular physical check-up in August, a slight lump was “accidentally” noticed in her abdomen. After further examinations, scans, etc., she was diagnosed with appendiceal cancer. The good parts are that she is asymptomatic, meaning she feels great, no pain or discomfort of any kind, AND, it is also called low grade. Quincy has to be at the hospital at 5 a.m., Sept. 30, for the 12 hour surgery. She’ll be in the hospital for 2 weeks, and then a 3 month recovery. Besides everything else, she asks for prayer for her husband, Steve, and her dear sister.
Here is her positive and encouraging email:
Hi Patt and JL:
I'm writing because I would like to share a prayer request with you that has just very suddenly come into our lives since the first of September. I have been diagnosed with what appears to be appendiceal cancer, and I am scheduled for surgery on 9/30/15 at Emory University Hospital here in the Atlanta area. We've been told the cancer is rated stage 4 because it has come out into the peritoneal cavity and other organs may be involved. There is simply too much "Muck" in the gut for them to be able to get a clear picture until they operate.
I know that the prayers of the Saints are key in unleashing the power of God in any situation and so my request is that you share this with whatever network of saints you feel appropriate to ask for prayer. Above all, Steve, Jane, and I want to honor God and how we respond to the situation. The Lord has given me an Orthodox Jewish surgeon named Joshua and we are claiming his soul for Christ’s kingdom. I have already shared with him that I'm going to call him by his first name Joshua after his name sake as a form of even higher honor than calling him “Dr.” I am claiming Joshua 1:4, 5 & 9 for him and have told him so. I have told him that just as Joshua led the tribes into Canaan and no man could stand before him that our God is with him and no cancer will stand before him as he leaves the tribe of “Warner” into the land of cancer! Our prayer is that when he opens me up on the 30th no cancer will be there & our God will use that event to lead him to Jesus as Messiah! Thanks for joining us in prayer.

Thank you all for standing with Quincy, her husband Steve, and her sister Jane during this difficult time.
In His Healing love,
J. L. & Patt
P.S. Two more ND alums have been in the recovery mode. Thank you for your continued prayers for Jane Fraser and her hip replacement rehab. Every day is a little better than the day before! We also ask for you to pray for David and Vickie Morrow, and their daughter, Joanna, who were in a car accident about 10 days ago. A driver ran a red light and plowed into their car. Fortunately, they had no broken bones or concussions, but lots of bruises that they are still recovering from.
