Gratitude from Sister Debbie

Gratitude from Sister Debbie

For encouragement during illness

By Sister Deborah M. Borneman SS.C.M.

Over the past five months, I have experienced many prayers, kind words of encouragement, and patient understanding from many NRVC members and collaborators as I was being tested and treated for stage 1 cancer. The oncologist and surgical staff successfully removed the tumor so that I will not need any further treatment.

I deeply appreciate your concern and thoughtfulness while I continue to heal. I look forward to coming back soon to full-time ministry with NRVC. May we continue to keep one another in prayer, and together let us remember all those who are awaiting medical test results or have illnesses without a simple cure. Thank you.
