On October 25, 2010, Trinity Grace Church was diagnosed with cancer.
Of course, I was the one who received the phone call from the doctor and scoured the internet for information about the rare cancer. But as the news rippled through our small church family, my brothers and sisters in Christ linked arms with my husband, young children, and me. They carried our burdens and wept with us.
Cancer wasn’t just an assignment the Lord gave me to glorify him in suffering. He gave this difficult assignment to my community, too.
