Words Of Encouragement

When Dan received his diagnosis the love and words of encouragement poured in from every corner of his life. It was especially wonderful to see the impact Dan was making in his students’ lives and that they had included him within their daily prayers.

What follows is a small sample of the outpouring of kind words Dan received during treatment. Over the months he received piles of letters. Very humbling for us all.

Joshua said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; do net get discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the Lord will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.’” – Joshua 10:25
