Dear Family and Friends:

As Muriel continues to improve from her two surgeries and the implantation of the port for chemotherapy, we also continue to hear from many of you.  Thank you for your prayers and concern that have surrounded and supported us during this first phase of the “Cancer Experience.”  We have felt God’s presence in the midst of this struggle.

On Thursday, June 23, Muriel will receive her first dose of chemotherapy to initiate her six months of chemo treatment. We can’t say we look forward to this experience and yet we know it will move us closer to the goal of a life without cancer and Muriel’s  eventual return to the mission field in Mexico.

We rely on your prayers and God’s mercy and goodness to sustain us during this next phase of treatment.

Your Mission Partners,

Muriel and Terry Henderson
