Dearest Ones:

There’s really not much to tell this month.

I am still with Hospice Care, which by the way has been such a blessing. They are very loving and caring and compassionate and they do all the re-fills for the prescriptions, which is such a relief. I am so happy with them.

Without having to go to the doctors every other day or chemo or radiation, it’s left me time to do what “I want.” So, I had my dearest friend in all of the world, Debbie, and my daughter and granddaughter, come and visit. We had the time of our lives celebrating a “rescheduled” Fourth of July Fire-works display (Jeremiah Camp Concert, dancing, water activities, eating out, taking scenic drives, etc.). We had an absolutely wonderful time.

I am at present trying to finish writing The Last Chapter which is really the last chapter of the book Hope Against Hope. One can’t really write something unless they have first lived it out. I’m so excited about what the Lord is showing me.

The KHW ministry is going strong and everyone is very excited about the new directions we are taking. Thank you also for your prayers for my son Mark. He is doing so well. He said he wanted to be “a general in God’s army.” Well, that’s exactly what he has become.

Praise God!

I love you all and again, thank you, with all my heart.

Dearest Ones:

About a month ago, the doctors told me that there’s really nothing more that they can do for me medically—there are really no more options.

So, PRAISE GOD, when the healing does come, I can give ALL the glory to the Lord.

As a result of all of this, however, I have chosen to go with Hospice. They have been absolutely phenomenal. They deliver all the medicines I need (when I need them); they send a doctor to check on me every once in a while, and a nurse comes every week. They have truly been a blessing. In fact, while being with them, God has had the freedom to do miracles: my headaches have subsided, my hip pain is less, I’m sleeping better and I’ve gained weight. This is due not only to getting off all the drugs, but also for your faithful prayers.

God has also inspired me to write “The Last Chapter” of the Hope Against Hope book. He has encouraged me to do more research on healing, especially His timing for His healing and His way of healing. Healing is more than just physical healing—God also wants to heal our souls and our spirits. God is daily giving me more understanding as to what “temporal hope” really involves and again, how we can continue to walk in it, even when we don’t see anything happening or understand what He is doing at the present. This attitude has allowed me to begin to personally experience “His Love, Joy, peace, longsuffering and faith…” like I never have before (right in the middle of my trial). (Galatians 5:22-23)

Again, I thank all of you for your continued prayers and love and support, not only for me but also for Chuck and my precious son, Mark. As you probably have already heard, Mark’s cancer has also returned. But, he has such an incredible attitude and outlook on it all, that it totally blows me away. He wants to be “a general in God’s Army standing up and speaking forth the Word of God.” I’m so proud of him. Please continue to pray for us all.

Chuck has been here for a month loving on Mark and me. Please continue to pray for the ministry in New Zealand. It’s hard for Chuck to be in two places at the same time.

My dearest friend and ministry partner, Deb, has been here for ten days and we have had a wonderful time. Here’s a note from her:

Being with Nan this week has been so much fun–her little home is so full of God’s light and love!! Throughout the week I have seen Nan get physically touched in so many ways—her energy level is amazing. We have spent countless hours in prayer and studying the Word, along with doing errands, watching movies and hosting a small gathering of precious women. So needless to say, she’s not in bed.

We’re both really excited about the future of King’s High Way. Thank you for your continued prayers, encouragement and love that you’ve shown to Nan and all of us at the ministry.

En Agape,

Nan, Debbie and The King’s High Way

To all my beloved friends, precious family and those faithful ones who have been praying for me from all over the world.

First of all, let me tell you about my son, Mark. I had asked you to pray for him last month as he faced a huge and very dangerous cancer operation. The cancer in his body had attacked his tail bone from the inside and in order to remove it, the doctors had to go through his stomach. They had to temporarily remove all his organs, cut the diseased tail bone out and then, replace it with an artificial one. So, needless to say, the operation was very painful and took 14 hours to complete. Your prayers were desperately needed and so appreciated. Let me fill you in on what happened…

Mark just started a new “real estate” career in February. The second day after he got home from almost a month’s stay in the hospital, he sold two of his own listings. These are huge houses with huge commissions. Mark sees this as a total “God experience” — a “God thing” as he says!!! I’ve never seen him so happy or so in love with the Lord. So, thank you, thank you for your prayers and your love for my family. They certainly have touched us, blessed us and allowed us to see God’s Hand in the midst of adversity.

With me, the update is a little more complicated, but still very hopeful and very peaceful as I KNOW the Lord is in control. The first thing I must always remember is that God heals us. YES, He heals us. BUT, that healing is always in His timing and in His way, not ours. And, that’s certainly what He is doing with me. Whole churches, people from all over the world, some children, many parents, lifelong friends and all of my family have been praying continually for me. I’ve never seen such a huge outpouring of love and concern. It has been enough to sustain me for a life time!

So I am still holding on (my headaches are a little stronger and my leg is bad), but when the Lord touches me, He will heal every part of me. So, please keep praying, especially that the Lord would be glorified and that He would be lifted up by what and how He chooses to finish my adventure. I know He loves me with His endless, constant and persistent Love.

To HIM be the glory!

I also love and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued prayers and your unbelievable support.

Dear Ones,

Please forgive my long delay in letting you know what is going on in my life. It’s been an incredibly up and down period with lots of “outside factors”, but it has finally come to a head.

First of all, I would like to reiterate that our faith should always rest in the “faithfulness of God,” not necessarily in the specifics of His promises. He promises in His Word to heal us, but that healing does not necessarily come in OUR timing or in OUR way. He is faithful and He will heal us in HIS timing and in HIS way.

That said, the doctors have decided to discontinue the new “chemo” drug I have been taking called, keytruda. This new treatment was supposed to shrink the tumor cells, but after 5 months on it, we have seen no evidence of this. So, at this point, there seems to be no other medical routes to be taken, other than totally relying upon and trusting in the Lord and His infinite ways. (During these past months, I have also tried many of the “natural suggestions” you have mentioned.)

I have more peace now in my heart than I did a month ago. None of this is new to the Lord. He knew all of this from the very beginning. None of it has taken Him by surprise. So, as I said, I trust in His faithfulness to complete what He told me a year ago:

“You shall not die, but live…to declare the works of the Lord.” (Psalm 136:17)

As for the pain in my leg, it happens to be a degenerated hip, not my back as I had thought. In fact, the doctor said he had never seen a hip so damaged as mine. He suggested a “hip replacement” operation, but until the cancer gets worked out, I will just continue to limp along. (It’s funny because my little dog “Munchkin” hurt his back left leg about a week ago, and he too, limps along after me. Others say we are “quite a pair” to watch.)

As for my son Mark, his operation is scheduled for the 18th of this month. However, after being prayed for by a very saintly and godly man, Mark feels like he has been healed. Pray for him to know exactly what God would have him do, so he can continue to have great faith and be a witness to others.

Chuck is coming home in a couple of weeks to be with us both. It’s going to be quite a special and emotional time. Again, I would so appreciate your love, your support and your prayers. I don’t know what we would have done without your prayers these past few months. My prayer for Mark and for me, is that the God of Hope would fill us with all joy and peace and that we may abound in HIS hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:18)

I love you all and I promise to do a better job of keeping you posted in the future.

Hi Everyone,

Since the last update quite a bit has happened in the life of our precious Nan. In October of 2014, she started on a new chemotherapy drug, called “Keytruda.” It had just been approved by the FDA. By the first part of December she had completed all the required treatments.

Two weeks before Christmas, she was taken by ambulance to the hospital with an attack of pancreatitus due to a gall stone (unrelated to the cancer treatments). While in the hospital for almost 11 days, she contracted a bacterial infection, and also, got pneumonia. Two days after Christmas, she was put back in the hospital because of the pneumonia.

Yesterday, January 12th, she started on a second round of the chemotherapy “Keytruda” and it will be administered to her for the next three months.

So needless to say, these last few months have been a very difficult time for her. We have decided to reschedule the “The Hope” conference at Grace Chapel in Franklin Tennessee. The advertised date was set for February 7, 2015. It has been reset to Saturday, June 20, 2015. It will still be a free one day conference. More information will be given out as we get closer to the June date. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the ministry at 208-772-6976 or 866-775-5464.

On January 1st of this year as I was praying and seeking wisdom for the ministry and the year ahead, the Lord gave me this Scripture:

Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.
-1 Corinthians 16:13-14

As, I’ve been watching, standing in faith and believing for healing for Nan, I know God hears my prayers; as well as, the countless number of you who are praying for her. Through all of this sickness, she’s been brave and strong, and has even written a book on what it means to have God’s right now hope during this hard time in her life.

So, let us all continue to walk in God’s Love (Agape) regardless of what the world, the flesh and the devil wants to throw our way. Let’s keep our eyes focused on the Living Word in 2015.

Thank you for your continued prayers for Nan and Chuck.

En Agape,
Debbie Holland

P.S. Please pray for their son, Mark, who’s also going through chemotherapy for cancer.

September 25, 2014

Hi everyone,

Over the last three weeks, quite a bit has happened since Nan brought you up to date on the hope journey that she’s been walking in for over a year and a half.

In the last update she mentioned that the melanoma was back and that there was an experimental drug that she may qualify for.

A little over two weeks ago, she got word that the FDA had just approved a new drug specifically designed for melanoma cancer. It’s the first of its kind and is called “keytruda,” a melanoma immunotherapy. Last Friday, she began this new treatment and is the first patient at the hospital where she goes to be receiving it. Prior to this treatment, the only recourse would have been standard chemotherapy, which was not designed for melanoma. She will be going through this new treatment for three months.

Please know that she continues to rely upon the Lord for healing, just as she has been doing all along. (HIS Word says it; she believes it; therefore, she speaks it.) Also, she is using several natural therapies. So with prayer, natural therapies, and the new drug, she believes God is going to use all these things to accomplish His will.

I had the opportunity of being with Nan over a week ago. While I visited with her, we praised the Lord a lot, laughed a lot, and prayed a lot. We also had the opportunity to visit an amazing church where they prayed over her and gave her great words of encouragement.

She is very hopeful that God is going to use all these things for His Glory.

PLEASE NOTE: We have decided to reschedule “The Hope” conference in Franklin Tennessee. The original date was set for November 8, 2014. It has been reset to Saturday, February 7, 2015. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the ministry at 208-772-6976 or 866-775-5464.

Again, thank you for your continued prayers and words of encouragement. I make sure that every email that is sent to Nan is forwarded on to her. Please know, they not only bless her, but bring tears to my eyes as well. WOW…the Body of Christ is amazing!!

“And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” –Deuteronomy 31:8

September 4, 2014

I don’t know of any more appropriate words for my life right now than these:

“Hope Against Hope”
(Romans 4:18).

The doctors have all told me there is no more medical help they can give me. In other words, we are out of options. The melanoma is back and in full force, not only on my nose (I look like a clown), but also in my lungs. More radiation and surgery are out of the question at the moment. The only thing left is a new melanoma drug that is not yet approved by the FDA. They are hoping it will be within the next three months.

There is a slight possibility that I might be able to qualify for another experimental drug study. That would be wonderful but that’s not what I am depending on in this moment. My precious Lord is in control, He cares about my life and He is faithful. Remember the Scripture He gave me several months ago: “You will live and not die” from Psalm 118. This is what I am hanging onto. Now, He might accomplish this in a totally different way than I expect or have different timing than I think. But I know He will be faithful to His promise one way or another.

A couple of things that are coming up that I am really excited about. I think you already know that Debbie, my dearest friend and ministry partner, and I are planning on doing a “Hope Conference” (on our new book Hope Against Hope) in November at Grace Chapel in Franklin, Tennessee. They will be taping and videoing the conference. Thus, Deb is coming here next week to help with the preparations. She is such a ball of fire and I am so looking forward to her visit.

The following week, my Chuck is coming “home.” Yea! It’s been so difficult for us to be apart these two years, but he has had to run the “New Zealand” operation and I have had to be here in the states for medical reasons. But, anyway, he is finally going to be here for a while and hold my hand. After 57 years together, you kind of become attached!!!!

And finally, at the end of September, my dear cousin (whom I haven’t seen in almost 15 years) is coming to visit. I am so excited to see her. We were inseparable as kids (born 1 week apart), but as we each married and had children, we kind of lost touch. So, how wonderful it will be to see her and catch up.

Again, I want to thank you for your continued prayers and words of encouragement. You all have been such a blessing. I pray the Lord would return that blessing a hundredfold.

Hi everyone—

Hope you’re having a wonderful summer! I know it’s been a while since we’ve updated you on Nan’s progress. Many of you have asked and we thank you for your love, prayers and support for Nan and the team at The King’s High Way ministries. Not only will Nan be sharing her own personal journey but, also, she has some wonderful news about what’s happening with the ministry. We feel so blessed about the new direction and season the Lord has planned for the future. We believe we are entering into a new season of where more Christians are beginning to have greater understanding of God’s Love (Agape), God’s Faith and God’s Hope. The message of God’s Hope is needed, more than ever, and we know the timing of Nan’s new book will be a tool to strengthen and encourage the body of Christ…for such a time as this… (Esther 4:14)

We welcome you to join us in this new journey.

From My Heart…

Dearest Ones:

Please forgive me for the long delay between updates.

As you know the brain cancer that God healed in February is gone, but since then, there have been other suspicious spots in my body that have popped up. Each week I thought we’d have more answers so we could bring you up to date. But, unfortunately, each week more questions seemed to arise. This week, for example, the CT Scan came out clear but the suspicious bumps on my nose are still there.

To be honest, I’m really tired of all the procedures, the confusion and the waiting for the results. In the last few months alone, I’ve had 4 CT Scans, 2 PET Scans, 4 MRIs, my nose has been biopsied 2 times, my stomach and lungs biopsied once. On top of this, I had the Gamma Knife procedure where they zapped the tumors in my sinus area with massive doses of radiation. The tumors have shrunk, but evidently are still there. I had another biopsy this morning on my nose, but it’s going to take another 2 weeks till we find out the results. It’s crazy! But, you can see why it’s been almost impossible to write an update, because even the doctors seem unsure as to what is going on.

But isn’t it wonderful that we don’t have to depend only upon the doctor’s opinions or their procedures, but we can see all the things that happen to us through spiritual eyes.

I know God is training me and strengthening me for what lies ahead. However, last February when God gave me His precious promise in Psalm 118 (“You will live and not die”), I thought the “war” was won. I thought the battle was complete and that I had had victory. I just wasn’t prepared to keep on battling—almost every day a new war. But, despite what is happening and how tired I am, I’m not giving in nor am I giving up. I know God is faithful and I know He will bring about His will, if I keep yielding mine. God is in control of my life and He is the One whom I trust in all of this. My prayer is that I will continue to “see His Handprint” in everything and that the whole situation will bring Him glory.

The enemy, of course, would just love to discourage me in any way he can. I must recognize this and continue to wage war against him by “the blood of Christ, by the word of my testimony and by death to self.” (Rev.12:11) By the way, I heard the most wonderful sermon a week ago that has changed my whole attitude. Steve Berger of Grace Chapel (Franklin, Tenn.) gave a powerful message on June 15th about fighting the enemy and how to do it. It’s on line if you want to look it up. It’s been a life changer for me.

My book “Hope Against Hope” (the title of which gets more and more personal for me every day) is at the editors right now and soon will be off to the printers. I so appreciate your prayers for this book, as the enemy has done everything he can to discourage us and to stall its production. The Lord however has provided an absolute miracle for the funds needed to complete the project. So, we praise Him for His faithfulness.

Finally, let me give you an update on The King’s High Way Ministries. For sometime now, the Lord has placed a vision on our hearts to expand globally. In order for this new season to take place, we needed a different facility to fulfill what He is calling us to do. So as of July 1st 2014, the Lord opened a door to a new ministry location in Hayden, Idaho just a few miles north of our current location in Coeur d’Alene. This new facility is above and beyond anything we could have imagined. Now, we will have the ability not only to host conferences, but also to video these events and offer webinars in the near future. We will miss our precious Craftsman styled home that we occupied for over 12 years—a place where many marriages and lives were touched and changed for all eternity—but we are ecstatic about the new place. So keep checking our website for upcoming events we are planning to host in the near future. Again, we would so appreciate your prayers in this regard.

So, thank you dear ones, for your continued love and support. I never could have made it this far without you. As Paul says in Philippians, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” And, I truly do!

Romans 4:20 seems so appropriate here: “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded, that what He had promised, He was able also to perform.”

May 6, 2014

Dear ones,

God’s ways are certainly not our ways. As Romans 11:33 says, “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and His ways are past finding out!”

God continually allows situations into our lives that force us to answer His question: “Do you trust Me?”

Two months ago, the two tumor spots they found in my brain mysteriously disappeared and all of us were overjoyed knowing that God had touched me. He had also previously blessed me with Psalm 118:17-18: “You shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord. The Lord hath chastened me sore; but He hath not given me over unto death.” So, I know He is in control and I DO TRUST HIM.

This past week, however, (even though the two above spots are still gone) the doctors found another malignant melanoma in my sinus area. And this new one they said is growing rapidly. They want to do a “Gamma Knife” procedure on me next week where they zap the exact spot with a massive dose of radiation that is supposed to kill the cancer immediately. I covet your prayers on this, as they have never done a case like mine (with an artificial nose) and they said the rays are so strong they could collapse the nose reconstruction and also destroy the new blood vessels supporting the new nose. It’s so scary to think about because I’ve already been through so much this past year. But again, I know that God is in control and I DO TRUST HIM!!!

Remember the book that we are getting edited and printed right now is called: Hope Against Hope. This new situation in my life is just another opportunity for me to do just that! “Though You slay me, YET I WILL TRUST YOU..” (Job 13:15)

I love you all and, again, a million thanks for praying for me. I wouldn’t be here without you.

Dear Ones,

Just a quick “update” to my precious brothers and sisters who have so faithfully been praying for me. I am doing so much better and every day I am gaining new strength. Again, thank you , thank you, thank you for interceding for me.

The Lord has been so faithful in answering yours and my own prayers. As you know He gave me Psalms 118: 17-18 on February 4th of this year: “[You] shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” Then, He repeated the promise: “The Lord has chastened [you] sore; but He hath not given [you] over to death.” One week later, the doctors called and said that the CT scans of my brain that they had taken earlier and that showed cancer cells, were now totally clear with no cancer showing at all. Truly, God healed me! He performed a miracle and even the doctors were blown away.

It’s been a tough few weeks since then, however, as I am regaining my strength. Even though the Lord healed me of the cancer, the withdrawal process from all the heavy medications has been brutal. The Lord is so faithful though. A couple of weeks ago when I complained about feeling so poorly, He gave me a perfect Scripture: Isaiah 41:10 which says: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God, I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” And, He has done just that. God’s promises are true and will come to pass, but it’s always in His timing and in His way, not ours. He healed me of the cancer; now He is in the process of restoring my body.

Great news department! Debbie just came and spent a week with me and we completed the “Hope Against Hope” manuscript. Koerchel/Peterson Design Company has done a fantastic cover for us. I can’t wait for you to see it. Now the manuscript goes off to editing, page layout, printing, etc., which usually takes a couple of months. We’re hoping to have the book printed and out by early summer.

Chuck is here with me now and then he goes back to New Zealand for a couple of months. You can pray for us, because being separated is very difficult. But, there’s no other choice at this moment. I have to get stronger so I can begin to travel. Speaking of travel, Deb and I hope to do a conference (possibly the end of summer) on “Hope Against Hope.” I have lots to share.

I love you all and thank you again for your incredible encouragement and your prayers.

“Hope we have as an anchor of our soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that which is behind the veil.” (Hebrews 6:19)

Dearest Ones!

One week ago, on 2/4/14, the Lord had me read Psalms 118:17-18. It was my normal devotional time, so I had no expectations of what He would say to me. I wasn’t familiar with the passage of Scripture He had given me to read either. This is what it said: “You shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord!” It went on to say, “The Lord has chastened me sore, but He has not given me over unto death.”

Those two little verses touched me so profoundly that I cried all night long knowing in my heart that the Lord had healed me.

Let me back up a little so you can understand what has gone on in the last three weeks. Monday, Jan. 13th, I had a relapse and ended back in the Emergency Room Hospital. They found two things (one, the CT Scan showed a small lesion on the left frontal lobe of the brain; and two, the MRI showed some suspicious cancer cells floating around in the brain fluid. I was experiencing dreadful headaches, with vomiting. So, needless to say, the last few weeks have been filled with “test after test” and “doctor’s office visits,” and, of course, lots of concern, lots of prayer and holding tight to Him.

In the Hope Book that I am just finishing, I have been writing about a place called the Holy Place–“The Secret Place,” a place of hiding out with the Lord. “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty…(Read Psalm 91:1-115) I actually felt like I was living there, prostrating myself between the Incense Altar where I knew He was hearing my prayers; the Lampstands where He was lighting my way and the Tables of Showbread where He was discerning the thoughts and motives of my heart. I was safe; He was holding me; and the intimacy and closeness I felt to Him has been absolutely overwhelming…and NOW…

And now, the doctors called yesterday afternoon and validated that the cancer has NOT gone to the brain. The Scans are clear! God has healed me and I just had to shout it from the roof tops. Like Job, I can now say “I had heard of You by the hearing of my ear, but Oh Lord, now mine eye sees You.” (Job 42:6)
My dear brothers and sisters, thank you, thank you, thank you. It’s your prayers and your Love and your supplication that He has heard and that He has answered. There are no words to tell you what you all mean to me.

I love you and can’t wait to hug each and every one of you.

Your outpouring of love and concern for our precious Nan has been amazing!

The last two weeks have been particularly challenging for her and the ministry. We have seen God’s Hand in every little thing that we have been going through.

We’re asking for continued prayers for our dear Nan. Several days ago she found out that she has two lesions on her brain that look suspicious. Nan and her family have chosen the medical route that they believe God wants her on. Please pray for the doctors and staff that will be making decisions.

On this journey of Psalm 23, the Lord truly has been her Shepherd and has been with her in both the still waters and in the valley of the shadow of death. And because of her love and faith in Jesus, there are no fears in her tomorrows because she knows God is lighting the path every step of the way.

This journey of understanding God’s Hope has been amazing! She’s excited and looking forward to sharing this experience with everyone. In fact, she told me the other day, “Debbie, I can truly say, in all this tribulation I am exceedingly joyful!!”

We’ll keep you posted!

Much Agape,

January 7 Update

Hello Dear Ones,
My thanks and appreciation again overflows for all of your notes and letters and cards.  I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to answer them.  Please know that I read every one, I personalize the prayers and I listen to all the advice and suggestions.  YOU–my family–have continued to hold me up during the times (especially in this last round) where I couldn’t do it myself.  May the Lord return to each of you a hundred-fold the blessing that you have been to me.

A quick update:  After 4 weeks of radiation (which actually weren’t too bad) to 4 weeks of recovery, which have been so difficult, I’m finally beginning to heal.  The side-effects of radiation are monstrous.  A mixture of boils, blisters and scales formed like cement over my entire face and now (4 weeks later) is only just beginning to peel off.  But, praise God, there seems to be a nose underneath it all.  It hasn’t collapsed as they feared it might!  Yea!  This is such an awesome answer to prayer.  Thank you so much for praying for me!

My next MRI and PET scans are scheduled for February 5-7.  Then, we’ll know just how much of the cancer they got.  I’m looking for another one of God’s miracles.

In the meantime, I’m recuperating with my family.  Most of my medical procedures have been done close to where my children live.  We have had beautiful times of fellowship and many memories.  How wonderful it was that they could come and visit me for Christmas.  My Chuck also flew over from New Zealand to be here with me through the radiation and for Christmas and we’ve had a blessed time together.

Best news of all is that the first manuscript for “Hope Against Hope” is finally finished.  Now we have to begin the huge editing process, which of course, takes time.  Our goal is to have the book printed and on its way in the late spring.  Lord willing…

Again, I absolutely love every one of you and can’t tell you how much your correspondence and prayers have meant to me.  That has been especially true this second time around…

I’ll keep you posted what we hear in February. But please keep on praying for the book “Hope Against Hope” and the same for me.

December 20 Video Update

November 27 Update

This Thanksgiving Nan is especially thankful for the outpouring of love and prayers from all of you. Chuck and Nan have asked me to express to each and every one of you how much the Scriptures, prayers, testimonies, and words of encouragement have meant to her.

Praise God, her brain scan came back negative and the cancer has not spread!

She is now more than half way through the radiation treatments. The burning and discomfort that is associated with these treatments has been very intense. Her nose is very sensitive to touch, so again, she has not been able to wear her glasses. Her daughter, Lisa, came up with a creative idea to attach her glasses to a visor. It works great!! Nan is now able to put the final touches on her new book, “Hope Against Hope”.

Please pray that this last leg of radiation would go smoothly and that she would have no sickness. Also, the radiation is very close to her eye, so please pray that these treatments would not affect her eyesight.

Nan and all of us at The King’s High Way Ministries pray that tomorrow as we celebrate Thanksgiving, we all would reflect on God’s goodness and all the ways HE has blessed us.

November 11 Update

Thank you all for your continued prayers and words of encouragement for our precious Nan.   Not only does she have a great attitude, but the peace of God is with her and her family.   She attributes that to your heart-felt prayers.

In the October 17th update, Nan wrote that the melanoma had returned on her nose and she was going to see a specialist regarding how to proceed.  The subcutaneous cancer (not a skin cancer) that is in the mucous lining of her nose is very rare and is spreading at a very rapid rate.  She waited on the Lord for direction because she knew the radiation would destroy the reconstruction that was done in May.   She has no other option at this time, except to go with radiation treatments.

Please know, many options were considered, but after much prayer and hours of research this was the best medical solution.  She has one of the best melanoma specialists in the world as her doctor.  Over and over again she has told me how wonderful and brilliant he is!

Starting Monday November 11, she will begin treatments that will continue daily until December 5th. Please continue praying as the radiation will be close to her eye and brain.   Also, on Monday, she will be getting an MRI of her brain to make sure that the cancer hasn’t spread.

She asked me to let you know that she has read every one of your emails that were forwarded on to her.  Thank you again for all the suggestions and the different forms of treatment that you have made her, Chuck, and the family aware of.   She is overwhelmed with the love you have shown to her.   She feels confident that the road of recovery that she has chosen is the one God wants her on at this time.

She has almost completed her new book on God’s Hope.   Let’s pray that next year at this time she will be teaching this anointed “right now” message.

With much Agape,

Debbie Holland

October 17, Letter from Nan

Thank you again, all my beloved brothers and sisters, for your faithful prayers and letters of encouragement. They have been such a blessing to me. This little update is to ask that you please continue those prayers…

I am still back East with my precious family and enjoying my grandchildren, many of whom I have not seen since we moved to New Zealand. It’s been an incredible time. Chuck flew in two days ago and we have all had a great visit.

But, unfortunately, we just got the results back from my recent biopsy and it looks like the malignant melanoma has returned and is in the very same area as before. I am scheduled to see another specialist this week to see if there is any other option besides totally removing the entire nose (the new nose septum and the old nose top).

Truthfully, I don’t have the strength to undergo another radical surgery, so I’m totally depending upon the Lord for His strength to see me through. (2 Cor. 12:9) I don’t understand it all, but I do unconditionally trust Him.

It’s interesting, because the premise of the new book “Hope Against Hope” that I am writing is that when circumstances make no sense, when they have turned out just the opposite of what you have been praying and when you can’t emotionally, mentally or physically do what is required, that’s when by faith you HOPE in Him. It turns out that the Greek words “hope” and “trust” have the same root meaning. This is exactly where I am walking now. (Job 13:15)

I will keep you posted as best I can, but for now, my prayer request is for a miracle and also for supernatural strength to walk out whatever the Lord allows…
I love you all…
Founder of The King’s High Way Ministries

August 28, Letter from Nan

Again, thank you all for your prayers, your love and your wonderful e-mails and letters. They have been such a continued blessing.

I am still with my family and recovering well. My “new” nose is amazing as day-by-day I see the bumps, the swelling, the soreness and the redness receding. It still feels like a “clown nose” at times, but again, I am so thankful to have a nose at all, not a hole. I am continuing therapy under doctor’s orders. Right now I am seeing a couple of radiation oncologists for consultation. They are anxious to radiate the margins around the original mucosal melanoma. Please pray for me to make the right decision as I am very hesitant to do this and have a huge check in my spirit about going forward. Some of the side effects of this type of radiation (so close to my eyes and on the newly reconstructed septum) not only can be dangerous, but also could destroy the new nose structure. I really don’t have peace about doing this, but felt the Lord would have me at least hear the doctor’s opinions and all their arguments for doing so. (For “skin” melanoma’s they don’t usually radiate, but with “internal” melanoma’s, like mine, they do. My specific case, however, is so rare they don’t have any precedents to base future treatments on. They said I am one in a hundred thousand .)

God has been so faithful to go before me every step of the way, so I am confident that He will show me what He wants.

I’ve started the new book, Hope Against Hope. Yea!!! Finally!!! Now, that I can wear my new light weight glasses for an extended period of time I can actually “see” to write. It’s wonderful! How I thank God just to be able to see again. The words for the book seem to flow as they are from my heart, not my head or some book knowledge. I now personally know what it means to be “hopeless,” (I’m not talking about our “eternal hope” in Jesus’ soon return, but “temporal” hope—moment by moment hope—where you pray and pray and pray for something and nothing changes…that kind of hope.) So I pray this book will minister to many who are or have been walking in the same place.

My Chuck is busy in New Zealand having weekend conferences at the Lodge, receiving resident students and recording new briefing packages. It’s very sad for us to have to be apart, especially after 57 years of marriage. But, our insurance is only good in the U.S. and it has been phenomenal. (You can only imagine what all of this has cost!) Chuck will be back in the U.S. in October for his big KI conference. But, He too, thanks all of you for the love and support and prayers you have shared on behalf of our whole family. You have been and continue to be a huge blessing to all of us.
Again, as I’ve said many times before, I know I could not have made it through this ordeal without your prayers. “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” (Phil. 1:3)

August 23rd Update

Debbie gives a good report on Nan in the video we posted today. Here’s the link to the VIDEO.

July 3rd Update

…Again, my blessings and my thanks to all of you who prayed for me (and especially those of you who wrote encouraging e-mails to me) over the past few very difficult months. As Philippians 1:3 says, “I thank my God [daily] for [all of] you.”

I wanted to begin by giving you just a quick update: I was finally able to get a new pair of glasses last week (which are made out of a light plexi-glass material that can handle tri-focals). The glasses and frame weigh less than one ounce. Thank You Lord, I’m now able to wear these with a pad over my nose and I can see! Seeing is one of the many blessings we so often take for granted—just to be able to read, to write, to e-mail, to phone, to type, to text and to converse and see my own beloved family. I so appreciate the ability to do those things again!!!

Being able “to see” also allows me the privilege of driving again. Yea! I love to drive—I’m a born and raised L.A. freeway driver (I’ve driven horse trailers, boat trailers and U-Hauls all over the country). Driving gives me the freedom to do my own thing (get my own groceries, my own prescriptions, go to my doctor’s appointments, etc…; little things, but oh so important for our own independence).

The best news of all, however, is that I had a follow up MRI last Thursday and it came back clear—no new cancer cells!! Praise God! Oh, how I love the Lord! I really could not have physically or mentally gone through any more surgeries. (By the way, thank you all for your suggestions on radiation and chemo. I’ve read all of them and am praying as to what the Lord would have me to do.)

Before I close though, I thought I might share a personal lesson (among the many) that the Lord seems to be teaching me through this traumatic experience. It seems to me that trusting the Lord through difficult circumstances (and I’ve certainly had my share of those), is much easier (in my opinion) than going through constant physical pain. Physical pain wears you down; at times it is unbearable and often, it is unending. You lay there and you choose to trust Him, and then you choose again and again and again, but the pain continues. If you don’t know (or have memorized) His Word and His promises, it’s very difficult to hold on, almost impossible to focus and hard to have hope. This is where I fell over the past few months. (Thus, my respect and admiration has tripled for those saints who continually fight this battle. I thought I knew what it might be like. I wasn’t even close!)

So, the lesson I’m personally learning, is that it’s not only important to daily read God’s Word (or listen to it by CD or DVD), it’s also important to memorize His Word and His promises. Then, if by some chance, like me, we are unable to read or listen to His Word for awhile, we can still hold on (& fight the enemy) by speaking forth His Word, focusing on the Lord (not the pain), and having hope. This is what I’m praying the new book, Hope Against Hope, will address but in a very practical way.

In closing, you might want to read 2 Corinthians 6:4-5 which tells us some of the “things” that the Lord might allow IN our lives. But, verse 7 gives us the answer as to how we are to get through these things. And, of course, God’s answer is: BY His Word of Truth, His Power and His Armor on our right hand and our left.

En Agape,
Founder of The King’s High Way Ministries

2 Corinthians 6:4-7
(4) But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses,
(5) in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings;
(6) by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
(7) by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

UPDATE 14 – May 31, 2013; from Nan!

Dearest Ones;

Just a quick “update” and to again thank you for your incredible, encouraging and uplifting e-mails.  Your love, your prayers and your Scriptures have not only been a blessing, I believe they have saved my life. Your messages of Godly support gave me the hope I needed to continue on.

I just wanted you to know I’m doing much better.  I’m up and around, even taking short walks and able to support my glasses on my new nose for an hour or so…So praise God!!!  In that precious hour, I’m starting to gather together all my notes the Lord has given me during this difficult time (40 pages worth) on the new book “Hope Against Hope.”  Some of His thoughts and insights have been totally new to me, even after being a Christian over 57 years!

My sweet Chuck was here last week and we spent some very special moments together.  He now has to return to New Zealand, but will come back here next month.  I am to see the Radiologist on Wednesday and we’ll see what my own plans will be for the coming months.

But, again, thank you for giving me such “Godly support” when I couldn’t do it for myself.  You truly have been a part of saving my life.

My new favorite Scripture is 2 Corinthians 4:8-12:  “We are troubled on every side, but not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,  [so] that the Life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body…”


Founder of The King’s High Way Ministries

UPDATE 13 – May 7, 2013 – Letter from Nan!


How do I describe the last three months?  As Charles Dickens said, “They have been the best of times, they have been the worst of times.”

The BestI now have life, my life has been saved:  The cancer (malignant melanoma in my mucus membrane) has been removed.  So I thank God with all my heart for the life He has restored to me, and I pray that He will use it as He desires.

The Worstthe agony that I’ve been in these last three months has been un-imaginable.  The first doctor that I saw told me that if it was his 75 year old mother, he would NOT recommend the operation because of the excruciating pain it would entail.  And another doctor said that, “If you don’t let them take your nose and surrounding area of your face, you will literally have 2 months left to live.”  So I believe with all my heart, that without your prayers, I would not have made it through.

I have not been able to write, because I cannot prop my glasses on my nose, but have to hold them up to my eyes with one hand.  Even now, I am dictating this letter to my daughter to type.  I have read all your emails and they have blessed me and kept me going when I just wanted to give up.

Thank you all for taking the time to write, quote scripture, and share stories, all of it has helped me keep my eyes on the Lord.

I am still facing possible radiation and chemotherapy, etc… but the “Big” stuff—surgery and reconstruction, are hopefully behind me.  God truly has held my hand through all of this and has ministered to my heart.  HE has been waking me up at night with words of hope to get me through all the pain.  With all the surgeries on my nose, my prayer is that I would be able to support my glasses soon, so I can finish my book on Hope.  We have decided to call it, “Hope Against  Hope” (Rom 4:18) as much of it will be based on my own personal experience.  I will describe more of the fascinating details of the procedure, it is truly a miracle.

I love you all … and thank you for helping me make it through this difficult ordeal.  May God be praised and may all His purposes one day be known.  Job 19:25 “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.”


Founder of The King’s High Way Ministries

P.S. A note from Debbie—

…I was just in contact with Nan and she wanted me to let you know that she’s had a huge breakthrough with the intense pain in her head.   At this time, the excruciating headaches have subsided and she has had an amazing energy boost.  (More energy than she’s experienced in a long time.)  Praise the Lord!!!    Thank you for your continued prayers…

UPDATE 12 – April 22, 2013

We just heard from Chuck regarding Nancy’s surgery this morning.   The doctors said that phase 2 of the reconstruction went beautifully and according to plan.  They are very pleased with the outcome.  Nan will be recovering throughout the night at the hospital, and, if all goes well, she will be released tomorrow.

When I spoke with Nan yesterday, she told me that she was able to feel the end of her nose and that it didn’t feel like a “clown nose” anymore.   What a miracle!

Thank you for your continued prayers for our dear sister.

As we know more, we will keep you updated.

O give thanks unto the LORD, for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] forever. (Psalm 107:1)



KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 11 – April 20, 2013

Praise God that Nancy has had a couple of weeks to recuperate and is feeling much better.  She has been able to sit for short periods of time and read all of your emails.  The words of encouragement, prayers and love that she felt from everyone helped in her recovery and blessed her beyond words.

On Monday, April 22nd, she is having “phase 2” of reconstructive surgery done on her nose.   The doctors don’t expect it to be as long and drawn out as the first surgery.  They are anticipating that there will be no problems and that her surgery will be very successful.  But, please pray.

Also, pray that her body does not reject the new cartilage or septum that she received in “phase 1” of her reconstructive surgery.   That would be horrific…but, so far everything looks wonderful.    We will keep you posted as soon as we know more after the surgery on Monday.

With much Agape,


KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 10 – April 8, 2013

I was able to speak with Nancy last Friday and Chuck today.   Everything is going according to plan and the surgery on her nose looks wonderful.  She had her “bandages” changed and is finally able to breathe out of her nose.

The plastic surgery was very extensive and many new procedures were used.  In fact, doctors from around the world are watching and learning from her surgery.

The greatest concern was that her nasal area would not reject the new septum and cartilage that was put in and that there would be no infection.  So far, things are looking great.

Because of the bandages over her nose and the sensitivity to her face, she’s not able to wear her glasses.  So she’s basically been blind.  She relies on them to see close up and far away.   The family did manage to make her some make-shift glasses that she can wear for about 10 minutes so she can see at a distance.

Her next surgery is scheduled for April 22nd with the same plastic surgeon.  We will keep you updated with any new information as it comes to us.

Again, thank you for your prayers, the warfare has been intense.  Nan really believes that without the prayers from everyone she would have lost hope.


KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 9 – March 29, 2013

We heard from the family last night and this morning. Nan’s surgery went according to plan.  The surgery lasted for over six hours and she was in the recovery room throughout the night.   The plastic surgeon was very encouraged by the results and how well everything went.

Right now, she is resting in her room but in a lot of pain and exhausted.

Thank you for your continued prayers.  Words can’t express how much they have meant to Nan. Multiple people have been awakened in the middle of the night to pray.   Many of you have been fasting.  Families and Bible study groups from around the world have been praying.  Individuals have been given Scriptures to pray and beautiful words of encouragement.  It’s so beautiful to see “The Body of Christ” working the way God intended.

Thank you, again, for your outpouring of love; Chuck and Nan are so blessed and appreciative.


Debbie Holland
KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 8 – March 27, 2013

The outpouring of love and prayer continue to overwhelm all of us here at the ministry.    We’ve been moved to tears and have had our spirits lifted with your emails of encouragement.

Nan’s surgery is still scheduled for Thursday March 28th.  Thank you for your continued prayers on her behalf.


Debbie, Tim, Lori, Kathryn and Davey

PS…The King’s High Way Ministries is known for Agape–God’s Love.   Holy week is a time where we reflect on and consider the death and resurrection of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We’ve had some new insights on God’s Agape Love that we put into a short 3 ½ minute devotional.   We pray this will encourage you in your walk with the Lord this week.

UPDATE 7 – March 25, 2013

First of all, we want to say thank you for all the beautiful prayers, words of encouragement and love that you’ve shown to our beloved Nan.   She is in awe of the outpouring of concern that people have shown to her and Chuck.

Since the last update, the doctors were able to get the blood flow under control and part of that process involved removing the temporary stints from the back of her nose.  The original plan was that they would start radiation treatments this week, but because the stints had to be removed, and other complications, the plan changed.

The doctors have decided to go ahead with the reconstructive surgery this Thursday, March 28th.   The plastic surgeon who will be doing this procedure has been a nose doctor for over 26 years.  Apparently, the type of reconstruction that Nan needs is something he’s never done before, but he feels very confident that everything is going to go great.

Currently, Nan is resting and recuperating at a home near the hospital.  I’ve done my best to forward every one of your emails to her.  When she has a chance, she tries to read a few at a time. They have ministered and blessed her beyond words.

Again, thank you for your prayers.


Debbie Holland
KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 6 – March 19, 2013

We just heard from the family that Nan has been taken to the emergency room several times throughout the last two days. They are having difficulty stabilizing the bleeding from her surgery.  This has added to the pain she is already experiencing.

Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and that Nan’s pain would be controlled.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.      (Romans 15:13)


Debbie Holland
KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 5 – March 14, 2013

Moments ago I just spoke to Nan from her hospital bed at home.  Yes…at home!!

The results came back from the lab this afternoon and Praise God—they got all the cancer!

Nan wanted to thank each and every one of you who are praying because she said, “It was your prayers that got her through.”  Especially Tuesday night…  She was in surgery at 7:00 in the morning and didn’t get into her room until late in the evening.   Throughout the night the warfare was intense — emotionally, mentally and physically — it was beyond anything she has ever experienced in her life.  But in the midst of her hopelessness, she had a wonderful encounter with the Lord.   HE gave her three pages of notes to add about “His Hope” to her new book.

Radiation treatments to her nose will begin in 2 weeks, then reconstruction following.  Please pray for the plastic surgeon because most of the procedure work that needs to take place has never been done before.  We will keep you posted because your prayers are vital.

Chuck and Nan, their family, the staff at The King’s High Way and Koinonia House want to thank all of you for all the outpouring of love and encouragement you’ve shown.

But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You.   Psalm 5:11


Debbie Holland
KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 4 – March 13, 2013: 4:45 pm PDT

All the staff at The King’s High Way Ministries appreciate the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of you on every continent who have been praying and fasting for Nan.

Both Chuck and Nan have said that they want to thank you for your outpouring of love and prayer.

The doctors were quite pleased overall with the surgery, but there are a number of important decisions needed now, some unexpected.

Nan had a rough night last night because of pain, and it is still an issue for her now. We covet your prayers for our dear Nan! May each of us experience what Paul wrote about in Colossians 2:2a,

…that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love…


Debbie Holland
KHW Ministry Director

UPDATE 3 – March 13, 2013:  10:41 am PDT

Moments ago we had our first report about Nan. She’s out of surgery but in much pain and needs our prayers. As soon as we know more, we’ll let everyone know.

UPDATE 2 – March 11, 2013

Nancy will be among the first into surgery tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. Please pray for her, for her family, and for her surgery team. You might also want to watch a short video we did as preparation for prayer.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.   (James 5:16b)

UPDATE – March 8, 2013

We just received news from Nan.

1. The Mayo Clinic has accepted her as a patient. The doctor who saw her earlier will continue as her doctor.

2. Her insurance OK’d her for the surgery. It has been scheduled for Tuesday, March 12th.

All of us at The King’s High Way Ministries want to thank everyone who has sent prayers and encouraging notes to Nan.  Please know every one of them was forwarded to her.

Nan wrote back and said, “I am over whelmed with all the responses!  Wow!  I feel very loved and prayed for.”

Please continue in prayer for our beloved Nan.   We will keep you updated.

Director of Ministries- KHW

March 5, 2013

Dearest Ones!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your love, your support and your prayers for me, my family and the ministry.  We have all felt your prayers and what a God-send you have been. “May the Lord return the blessing you have been to us, a hundredfold.”

I’ll bring you up to date as best I can, as the story continues to unfold… How quickly our lives can change…from a beautiful, serene “paradise existence” in New Zealand to a wild ride here in the states with an ending that only the Lord knows.

Three weeks ago, while visiting my family, my daughter saw a lump on my face and made me go to the doctor (I’m not good at doing that).  The doctor was concerned and sent me to an ear, nose and throat specialist, who took a biopsy of the lump and found it to be a malignant melanoma in the sinus part of my nose (in the mucous lining inside my nose, which evidently is very rare–1 in 100,000).  That doctor then sent me to a surgeon who gave us a very bleak prognosis:  literally take my face off (my nose and any other area where the tumor has already spread), followed by radiation and chemo.  He said that if I did nothing, it could be fatal in just a few months.

Wow! What a blow!!!  Again, how quickly our lives can change.

But, if we belong to the Lord, He is always involved in everything.  Right!!  So, here’s the miracle part of the story.  Yesterday we saw a radiology specialist (radiation won’t necessarily eradicate the tumor, but it will slow it down considerably).  In the middle of the conversation, he asked if I wouldn’t mind his talking to a “colleague” of his about the situation.  This “colleague” happens to be one of the chief endoscopic surgeons at Mayo Clinic (one of the best hospitals in the U.S.)  Of course, I said “yes, please do.”

So, the miracle is that there is a remote possibility that Mayo Clinic might accept me as a patient (because my cancer is so rare).  There are still some huge hurdles to jump over (like I don’t have the right insurance, etc.), but again if God is involved and He wants me there, an exception will be made.  So, I would really, especially on this matter, appreciate your prayers.  What a wonder that would be and so like our precious Savior!  I will keep you posted…

On a ministry note, as many of you already know, I am still in the middle of writing the book on “hope.” (Hope, the Anchor of our Soul).  Isn’t it so like the Lord to have us personally experience everything we are writing about, because we really can’t share thoroughly on a subject, unless we have first “lived it.”  Well, my physical situation is, at the moment “impossible” (hopeless) by the world’s standards, but with the Lord involved, there is always hope!  So this book is going to be a very personal journey of what the Lord does in my own life.  Truly, He is the God of Hope…

“Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God…” (Ps. 146)  I love you all and again, thank you for your continued love and support… “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.”  (If you can, read all of Philippians 1.  It’s such a blessing and exactly what God is trying to do in all of our lives.)



Philippians, Chapter 1

Paul and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ,

To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace.

For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ. And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.

For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith, that your rejoicing for me may be more abundant in Jesus Christ by my coming to you again.

Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, having the same conflict which you saw in me and now hear is in me.

We just received news that her insurance OK’d her for the surgery and it has been scheduled for Tuesday March 12th.   

All of us at The King’s High Way Ministries want to thank everyone who has sent prayers and encouraging notes to Nan.  Please know everyone of them was forwarded to her. 

Nan wrote back and said, “I am over whelmed with all the responses!  Wow!  I feel very loved and prayed for.”

Please continue in prayer for our beloved Nan.   We will keep you updated.

Update on Nan — 105 Comments

  1. Good morning, I haven’t come to your web-sight in a long time when I do, I see exactly what I wanted to talk about: “be Ye Transformed” section on “Mind of Christ”. I had this book a few years ago, couldn’t get into it so gave it away. Recently purchased another it was God’s timing. I’m 78 years old, soon to be 79 March; so far I have covered the three sections on ” Mind of Crist” : Awesome. I didn’t surrender my life to the Lord until almost 71, and right from the beginning the Lord has given me such a hunger and desire to know Him. Like Paul my “determined purpose is to know Him” [Phil.3:10] And your book has certaintly increased my hunger and desire. God bless you.
    Haven’t receivd an update on you for awhile pray you are improving. Looking forward to the release of your new book. LOVE and prayers. Joyce

  2. Dear Nan,
    I continue to pray for you and Mark. I have just seen Chuck on the live streaming conference in Idaho and have added him to my prayers as well. He seems to be frail.. I have reminded our Lord about Job and his trials as well as Abraham and God’s intervention in his life to make him strong in his later years. Just tonight, I asked my bible study group (we are studying Acts) to PRAY for you and your family. You and your husband have had a great infleunce on my getting back into the word and have caused me to want to drink from his fountain. Phil 1:6 Being confident of this one thing, he who has begun a good work in your will continue it until the day of Jesus Christ. You are loved with an everlasting love and underneath are the everlasting arms.

  3. God The Father has given all power to His only begotten son Jesus Christ. My humble prayer to Jesus Christ is that He heals you as he healed me. Amen.

  4. Hello t
    I have taken a photo of a few pages of the book “Oswald Chamberes Abandoned to God” I would like to send them as they much remind me of Nancy’s words but add a new dimension perhaps.. I think you will enjoy… It starts on page 263 if you might have the book… OTherwise please send e mail address… Chiaros

  5. I am just now finishing Hope Against Hope – i have been reading it slowly taking in each thought – it has been such a blessing to me – strengthening my faith and hope. I plan to just start it up again from the beginning and continue to read it. As I read it it helps me go in prayer for my family members who are suffering with cancer and to pray for you Nancy and your son Mark. Looking forward to the Last Chapter! God bless you Nancy, your family, and your wonderful friends – appreciate all you are doing and keeping you in prayer. Sincerely, Kathy

  6. I would like to thank you Nancy for the article: Long-suffering: a fruit of the Spirit ( I didn’t see where to comment on that page, so I’m doing it here). It is really clear, deep, and encouraging and what I LOVE the most is the poem of Christine. I hope Christine sees my comment. Christine, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for that poem. What you said in it is how I have been feeling for the past few years and I am getting ready to enjoy the fruit of my long-suffering. The Lord used it to tell me a few things and He even made me write some of the phrases from your poem in my notebook. May God bless you my sister and I pray that He keeps guiding you and your family and surroundings, and that success be your portion in everything you do, that your children inherit the wisdom of God in you and that it passes on from generation to generation in Jesus’ name!!

  7. I was reading your page and the following came to my rememberance. I was sitting on the beach pouring my heart out to God, the anguish, confusion, helplessness etc. I looked up and saw where the waves were coming from two different directions and running into each other at the waters edge when the Lord spoke to me and said: “Where the two waters met, the bitter and the sweet, that’s where My Grace abounds”. Oh what a wonderful, compassionate, loving Daddy God we have who’s Amazing Grace ABOUNDS ALWAYS towards us. Thank you and your husband for being so faithful with the precious gifts and talents given to you. The Lord continue to bless and sustain you.

  8. Dear Nancy, I just wanted to say hello, hello, oh, your still in my prayers, I Sincerly pray your feeling better! Brian

  9. Dearest Nancy,
    Remember Gideon and how his army was stripped down to what seemed impossible to win a victory. And David how he as a young man slew Goliath when no one else had faith. I remember a time in my life when I was so worried about my teenage daughter. I had all kinds of backup help(pastors,counselors) and the Lord spoke to me and told me to not rely on them and to only talk to Him about my worries. You are at a time such as this. When the Lord God Almighty will step in and show His power (for His Glory) to restore you. Faith(like the faith Abraham had when taking Isaac to that altar) is the answer. Trust Him. Read any scripture you can. They are ALL the word of God.

    I am praying

    To my sister in Christ heartfelt love.

    Robin Kirk

  10. Nancy, as I read your March 4th update, I couldn’t help but think that all of us are experiencing 2 Cor. 4:16. “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” As our bodies continue to weaken, thankfully our inward man is getting stronger and stronger, anticipating our real Home. I can’t help but think that we will all be safe at Home with Jesus and each other soon. Very soon. In the meantime we continue to pray for you and your family. God bless you, dear Sister. Rom. 8:18

  11. Dear Nancy,

    Haven’t heard from you lately. But you are in my prayers daily. I love you and wish I could see you. This world is so crazy, only the love we have for God, family and friends keep us sane. So I was just thinking of you and wanted you to know that you are much loved and prayed for. Your old friend, Paula Martin

  12. “Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble: I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
    — Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭14-16‬ (Revised Version 1885)

  13. I thank the Eternal for the introductory excerpt from your book(Passing through the Night)which I just read. I began weeping from the moment I started reading it. I have been struggling so profoundly with my faith and my relationship with God (The Holy Spirit kept me from totally falling away). There have been so many problems in my life that I really felt like just giving up and frankly I really tried, however as hard as I tried for some reason I just could not escape. So finding myself in an inescapable situation I sunk into deep depression (it seems that I was not destined for the easy way out). God has preserved me for His own purpose and for His glory. So the point is, I could sense that your words were written with great compassion and personal understanding. At the right time God has brought me to a place of encouragement (in the midst of His correction). I have heard, read and listened to hundreds (no thousands) of Christian articles and outside of the Good Book your words were exceptionally beautiful and relevant. Thank You and God bless your ministery.

    • Hello Will,
      We are so touched to know how much it blessed you to find our website!
      Your words are so encouraging to us as well!
      We pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort you during this season that you are going through.

  14. Dearest Nancy,

    I was praying about you on Saturday and found this scripture for you:

    James 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure: Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.


    Your sister in Christ Robin Kirk Winter Park,Fl

    • Thank You Robin!
      We will share this with Nan.
      Blessings and thank you for your continued prayers for her.

  16. Hi, Nancy!

    I’m a (fairly) long-time (~20 yrs.) fan of yours and Chuck’s. (Hey … how come I had to put an apostrophe in “Chuck’s,” but not between the “r” and “s” in “yours”? LOL). I’m a fairly new student (since last June). Got my Bronze last month. I’m so happy with it, I just might get it bronzed!

    I was delighted to “hear” your February 12 update, and your testimony about Psalm 118, which I read again. Now I have tears all over my keyboard (… well, almost. I’m wearing glasses). Another example of our Lord using ill for good … the book is going to be phenomenal.

    Mighty blessings, now and ever, from our Mighty King!

    In Him,

    Larry Prince

  17. Dearest Nan
    I sent you a long email as soon as I learned of all that you have endured this past year, but just in case you don’t receive it, wanted to send this short note to let you know that you and Chuck are in Scott’s and my prayers daily. I am praising God for His faithfulness to one of His most beloved and faithful servants whose ministry has touched so many lives, including mine! “The LORD bless and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you: The LORD look upon you with favor and give you peace.” I love you dearly, Betty Hightower

  18. I was reading Nancys recent post and was wondering if she felt like she was being chastened by the Lord. And if she did feel this way what was it that she felt she was being chastened for.(One week ago, on 2/4/14, the Lord had me read Psalms 118:17-18. It was my normal devotional time, so I had no expectations of what He would say to me. I wasn’t familiar with the passage of Scripture He had given me to read either. This is what it said: “You shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord!” It went on to say, “The Lord has chastened me sore, but He has not given me over unto death.”) Thanks JRP

    • When Nancy quoted those verses, her focus was on, “You shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord.” That came at a time when death from the cancer was a strong possibility in some minds. She has said that if God,”needed to chasten me in some way, I’m sure He did it in His perfect and loving way.”

      She also points out Hebrews 12:10-14
      (10) For they [human fathers] indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.
      (11) Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
      (12) Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees,
      (13) and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
      (14) Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:

      Nan said, “If it took some “chastening” in my life to do that [be a partaker], then, praise God.”

  19. Dear Nancy and Chuck,

    We continue to pray for you Nancy that the Lord will comfort, encourage and heal you from this dreaded cancer you have been suffering with. We pray for “His grace and strength” to be your daily portion, and that He will bring you through this time, and make you stronger than you were before the disease struck you.

    We are praying for Chuck too, as he travels from one ministry site, to another, preaching and teaching; we pray for his safety, and good health, for wisdom and strength, as he speaks and meets with others, Christians, and non-Christians alike.

    May God continue to bless you both exceedingly as you labor for Him! You are in our thoughts and prayers regularly, for all that you do for the Gospel!

  20. I have been praying for you since you became ill. Our G-d is a MIGHTY G-d! I am thanking him for your healing and may you have many years of ministry!

  21. Dearest Nancy, Praise be to the Lord…!!! What an awesome God we serve. Since the beginning of your trial I have felt in my heart and soul that God was going to use your trial in a mighty way. He needed a vessel that was willing to have faith and to trust Him. You have been an inspiration to so many. I have prayed for you as well as so many men and women that care. Praise be to God on your closeness and devotion to our Lord. Continue to write…your book on Agape Love influenced my life so much, along with your husbands podcasts that I listen to daily.
    God’s perfect grace and peace be with you. My love…in Christ. Marsha Groves

  22. Hello Nancy, Thank God for the grace he has given you to continue His in full capacity. There is no doubt His word is fulfilled in you by giving you “ALL” including sound health and healing that pertains to Life and Godliness…. God will continue to increase you and increase the fruitfulness of the work of your hands and that of Pastor Chuck. Samuelson Osoba – Lagos, Nigeria.

  23. So happy to read your last update, Nan! Praise the Lord !! You have been going through this valley and are such an inspiration!!! I pray the Lord will now bring you up , out into the sunshine into a place of good health and well being. You are well and truly loved.

  24. So much love and hope in just one prayer. I’m so pleased that you can feel Gods love through all this that you are going through. I hope and pray that the end of this time in your life is soon. And you awaken soon with a wonderful feeling of well being . God Bless you Nan

  25. Dear Nancy – I have tears of joy – my heart is overflowing with the amazing power of God’s love and grace over reading your update on February 12, 2014!!!! I will continue to keep you in prayer! Looking so forward to your study on HOPE!! Love in Christ Jesus,
    Kathy Paulus

    • Dear Nancy,
      I have only just now discovered the journey that you have been on over the last year and the brave battle that you have fought. Chuck and you are very dear to me. I have met the both of you a long time ago in Calvary Auckland NZ. I thank the Lord for the beautiful scripture that He has given you and the Healing that He has brought. I would love to encourage you to look into eating a raw diet from now on as this will help your body heal, recover and prevent future outbreaks of cancer. Please check out this dear Christian mans website chrisbeatscancer.com. Our western diet is Predominantly acid forming as our refined food and cooked food leave acid froming residues in our blood. This not only thickens the blood, but doesnt’ allow enough oxygen and nutrients to our cells and organs…these over time starve. Acidocis sets in and this is a breeding and feedingground for cancer cells.
      There are two factors always present with cancer cells – an acid pH and a lack of oxygen. Both factors are caused by acidosis due to our high refined diet. Eating raw – uncooked plant diet rich in nutrients and vitamins is alkaline forming in our body which oxydises our cells and feeds them the right nutrition. I esure you such a diet is yummy. I look forward to more of your posts. My prayers are with you and your family. Lots of love Klaudia

  26. Dearest Nancy,
    What wonderful news !!!! I am so grateful, as are all who know you, that your recent reports from the doctors are so positive. I will continue to pray for your continued healing and “return to normal”.
    With much love, Betsy

  27. Dear Nancy,

    My friend was told chemo would only make her sick since the cancer was on the blood vessel that fed her only kidney. They said she should go home and make peace with God. This was at UC, my husband was in a study there and would see her there from time to time. She was diagnosed over 12 years ago, and she still has it but she has not died. The doctor does not understand it. This person is not even giving God glory as far as I know. I haven’t talked to her lately, but I saw her drive by the other day. My husband is still here after 10 years, and has cancer in his bones in four places. He has been doing hormonal treatment, it has not been harsh, like chemo or radiation. We are here as long as God sees need for us to be here, and then he calls us home. It is hard to understand why some are called to bear so much, but since he is a perfect father we know He has a good reason or it wouldn’t be. I have prayed to die if I had to go another day in pain, but after 5 or 6 years of migraine headaches, he took them away, and I haven’t had another one. That was over fifteen years ago. I never doubted His love for me ever. I am praying for you and your family. Thank you for encouraging all of us to be strong. We love you. Dianne from Northern CA

  28. Dearest Nancy,

    Can’t get through the regular channels, so I must submit here. My heart and prayers are with you daily. Know you are a precious loved one. Miss you. Love, Paula

  29. Shema Christian Ministries, in Meadow Lakes (Wasilla) Alaska, is cotinuing in prayer for you, Mrs. Missler. We thank the Lord for your ministry and the many lives you and your husband have touched by the grace of God. Be blessed. Pastor D

  30. Thank-you for all the wisdom you have shared with the rest of the believers in Christ.I have been so comforted and encouraged by the books I have read.

  31. I don’t think it was by accident that I came home from work tonight telling my husband that I wanted to “check on you”. You were on my heart. Has it occurred to you that you are living the title of your book to the utmost degree? Nancy, Please do not be discouraged by what the doctors say. They are fallen creatures just like us. Only empowered by the will of our Lord. I am praying for Him to give them wisdom and for you to have a divine healing. For His glory!
    I searched the scriptures tonight until my heart was moved. 1 Peter CH 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than that of gold that perisheth, though it may be tried by fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
    Agape, Robin Kirk Winter Park,Fl.

  32. Dearest Nancy,
    Sent you a long e-mail yesterday which I hope you received. I am writing again today just to reiterate that you are in my thoughts and prayers daily.
    Stay strong dear friend and with your faith and everyone’s prayers you will continue to heal.
    With much love, Betsy

    • Hi Betsy,
      Be assured that your email will be forwarded on to Nancy, and this comment will go as well. The timing is not instant, though, because it is manually forwarded by staff. Also keep in mind that although Nan is upbeat and rejoicing, her schedule and health do not allow her to read email each day.

      Nancy has said many times that she deeply appreciates each person’s intercession for her and believes that it has helped sustain her. As James 5:16b says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

      • thank you Tim for your reply- it was much appreciated. Nancy and I have been friends since high school and she has a very special place in my heart. She is such a special human being as I know you all are aware of too.
        Thanks again for your timely response.
        Betsy McGee

  33. I first learned of you and your ministry through your husband’s on satellite radio. God has used both you and Chuck instrumentally in drawing me closer to Jesus. Thank you for allowing God to use you. I am praying for both of you as well as your families during this time. I am praying for mercy,courage!!,peace and healing. I add more specific requests as they come to me. I am studying to be a prayer warrior. One day I’ll get to meet you and it will be like meeting my sister! In Him, sharon

  34. Dearest Nancy,
    I am very sad that you are ill even though I know the Lord orchestrates our lives and His ways are not our ways.
    We know that all things work together for good to those who are called according to His purpose and you most certainly are.. There are many, many prayer offered up to the Lord on your behalf and we know they are a sweet fragrance to Him.
    You are such a blessing to me…..the Lord has spoken to me through you with perfect timing. This we know, that God’s timing is perfect and He can see the big picture, which we can’t do…My prayers join the others ….a healing now would be wonderful, that the Lord comforts you every hour of every day as you go through this period of your life is always on my heart.
    Know that you are very much loved, Nan

  35. Dear Nancy,
    Our Bible Study Group is keeping you in our prayers. There is a special diet that might help starve the cancer. Doug Kaufmann, a Christian, believes most diseases are caused by fungus. The main food cancer cells lives on is sugar and foods that turn into sugar in our system. He has a web site: http://www.knowthecause.org that can be helpful. I pray that this information is useful. Kathleen Rogers

  36. Dear Nancy,
    Please know that many of your friends in Southern California are praying for you. I have learned so much from your website – you are truly a woman of God.
    love, Patsy and Tom from Santa Barbara

  37. Nancy,
    I want you to know I’ve been praying for you nearly daily since hearing of your illness several months ago.
    I have a “reminder” set up so that I try to lift you and your family/loved ones needs up to the Lord each day.
    You are a strong woman of God, Nan. I pray God will show His power and magnificence in your healing. Your life and how you’ve lived it has been a testimony to so many through the years. This battle is the Lords and we know that means GOOD will come out of it.
    God Bless, Keep and Comfort you.
    LOVE, HUGS & of course prayers, Annette

  38. Dear Nancy:
    I have wanted to write you for some time and thank you for your wonderful books, “The Kingdom Power and Glory,” and “Never Give Up” as they have blessed my husband and I so much.
    I have been a Christian all my life. As a teenager I prayed to marry a Christian man and at 18 years old we I married first husband whom I believed to be a Christian, I later learned he was a pedophile who molested not only our daughter several times but also my little sister and on and on. Though I don’t believe in divorce I was between a rock and a hard spot. We became divorced and I remained single with three children for the next 12 years. He brought me to court 38 times for the next 8 years trying to do take our home, get joint custody etc. I remained pure and faithful to God and He was faithful to us. Fourteen years after my first husband and I divorced, God brought a Christian man who is very active in serving Christ into our lives, but three months ago we learned he has stage four malignant adenocarcinoma. I have taught women how to be victorious even when walking in adversity and now I find myself once again in a trial where I will continue to trust God, keep my eyes on Him and point others to the hope we have in Jesus. Col. 3:1-2….. Set your mind on Christ and things above, not on the things of this earth.

    My sweet husband now has stage 4 cancer. 4 brain tumors, or more, lung, bone and cancer throughout his body. He loves the Lord with all his heart and so do I. We began praying for you before we knew he too had cancer. Stephen is a recently retired wildlands firefighter who now can do very little. We know that God can and still does heal many people, but sometimes He doesn’t. Both my parents died from the same thing. My dear husband has gone through radiation, and chemo. The next step according to our doctor is to drive 6 hours away every other week for experimental trials at UC Davis. Of course, there is no cure, so we are praying for wisdom. Steve and I go into the hospital week after week asking God for “divine appointments” to share Jesus with others. We find this is an excellent time to witness as people in critical health will listen more readily. We both thought we would go in the rapture and how we pray that will still happen. We believe Jesus is coming soon and we can’t wait to serve Him in Heaven. I surely don’t want to be alone again, but thankfully I have a wonderful relationship with Father God and our soon coming King.

    As I got on this website to write you and thank you for your wonderful books and articles and to encourage you in knowing that people you don’t even know are praying for you and love you, I read your words how thankful you are for prayers. I am with you sister, because I too know the power and importance of those praying for us. How wonderful to be children of God and part of a wonderful body of believers. I see that you are writing a book on “Hope” and I am looking forward to reading it, maybe even with my husband should the Lord tarry and my beloved live here for a while more. A year ago I wrote and taught a women’s Bible study on “Heaven” which equipped me to be able to tell others at the hospital and in doctors offices how awesome Heaven is. As you know, the Bible is very descriptive of Heaven and nothing here compares with it.

    Anyway, Nancy, I wanted to send you a quick note to “thank you” for your steadfastness, your writing and your example and I am looking forward to reading your latest work. You are a blessing to many and I am sure that our Heavenly Father will say of you, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

    God bless you with healing, peace and joy during this part of your journey. Our God is amazing and He knows what He is doing. We can trust Him. I pray that as God said of Job, “have you seen my servant Job?” may He be able to say that of us.

    My husband and I have met your husband in conferences, the latest at the Pikes Peak Prophecy conference in July and one day we will meet you also…. here, there or in the air. God bless my sister.

    Love, Lynnette Lloyd

  39. I would like to honor you by saying that you and your husband’s Overcomers Handbook has help me open my eyes into areas of my soul that have never seen the light of day nor have I been willing to address these soulish issues within this particular context until now!

    In four years I have become a devout Christian who, without your inspiring books, would not have exponentially matured nor would my sanctification have progressed at this rate. I have experienced so much more confidence in God’s ability to communicate to me especially when I recall my personal thoughts and vision of FAITH becoming the carrier line of communications between me and God, just like the microwave antennas I used to install for DishNetwork and Starband! I do not know how God designed humans to be able to send and receive messages to Him, I just know He is with me. He loves me. And I am blessed to know His Son.

    Please! Do not shed another tear! Join in with me right now and just sing! Don’t be afraid! God will take away your WEAKNESS and all unbelief! Join in now for God is with both of us and He is singing, “I once was lost, but know I’m found, I once was blind but now I see, I don’t know how but He touched me and now my lifesong sings, I once was dead but now live, now my life to you I give, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, now my life sings to you! (Inspired by Casting Crowns John Mark Hall) We are now both blessed with the peace that passeth all understanding! Thank You Jesus Messiah!


    For all who read this letter my name is not important; but what is important is that we take Nancy’s hand and we join hands and help her sing with God “And Now My Lifesong Sings!”

    Pick a date and time and add this request to your news letter and we shall all hold God’s hand and sing this song with Her!

  40. Hi Nancy. I too am praying for your healing. Have you looked into B17, or Laetrile. Basically it is the seed of an apricot, or to be precise, the soft part , or middle of the seed.

    See this link, B17.com.au

    Take care and God bless you.


  41. I have followed you both for years. I pray that the Lord will heal you. I pray the Lord will allow you to stay with us for your continued blessing on all. I would willingly give my life to you if the Lord would give his permission. I pray for you and yours. Rod Justin. God Bless you both. Rod Justin

  42. I am intently praying for you Nancy. I know what you are going through,my cousin had experienced the same thing.
    Perhaps you should try a liquid substances I am using called “Hydrogen Peroxide (food grade). It has helped me
    with my health. Just a suggestion. I don’t demand anyone to use. Like Chuck would say, “Never take my word for it”
    Do the research yourself. I make this suggestion out of Agape Love. You and Chuck have started opening my eyes to
    what truth really is. God Bless your ministry.

  43. Dear Nancy,

    So very sorry to learn of this problem. Will be praying for your recovery.
    I’ve read that cancer cannot live in an alkaline body. Might be woth trying to check out alkaline foods and sticking to them, Cancer is fed by sugars.
    Our eldest granddaughter was diagnosed with stage 4 non-hopkins lymphoma 10 years ago and began the chomo therapy. She became pregnant while on therapy and was told by several doctors that the child would be brainless or some other terrible condition and she should abort. She chose to trust God. The child is now a very healthy, active normal 9 year old. Danyeal has remained cancer free.
    Point being, God is The Almighty and limited by nothing. So I will be praying that His will is for you to be healed and that He be with you and your loved ones through this.
    I want to thank you for all the books, tapes and other info you provided that has helped me through the years in my walk with God.
    I also want to thank you for your response 8 years ago, when our youngest daughter died unexpectedly.
    With love,

  44. Dear Nancy,
    I am praying for you to be pain free and healed. You have been my spirit-sister. I can’t believe how many times you came into my life at just the right moment. I pray for more of those moments and look forward to your finished book on Hope. I do not know why the Lord lets you suffer in pain. I know that the product of it is to gift you with the fellowship of His sufferings, and what he went through to intervention for us, unworthy ones. May He give you visions, and appear to you more than ever before. You were to come speak at Calvary Chapel in Ukiah years ago, but said you were working on yourself at the time, and sent me your notes before they became books. Since that time my husband pastor backslid and we later divorced. You sent me Faith in the Night Seasons (totally unexpectedly) and so led by God. Today, in a sovereign encounter with an ex-pastor, going through deep waters with his wife, I was able to refer him to you and Chuck’s site and your book. God has used you and will continue to use you. There has to be more books! I do feel the call of Home for all of us together soon, but lets go together. You have been a Hope in my night seasons. I love you and will continue to pray for you, especially for no more pain, as well as healing. I have heard of doctor in Texas, Burzynski, who has done some natural medicine and cured brain cancers. My nature path has heard him speak and sells some of his products. He is worth looking into. Don’t give up ever. We want and need you here still. Love & prayers, Judy Hessler


  45. Praise God for His mercy and grace to you Nancy. I am in prayer for you and the family as well as your ministry daily.

    Shalom, Elder Kenneth C Collins, Sr.

  46. Nancy, I will be praying for you. My heart sank when I read about your condition.
    I really appreciate you and Chuck. Both of you have been diligently building up and encouraging
    others. Thankyou Nancy.

    In Christ,
    Dennis Belles

  47. Merry Christmas Nancy:
    You continue to be an inspiration to all Christians. Thank you for your teachings and ongoing love for the unsaved as well as for the brethren. Looking forward to reading your upcoming book and growing in God’s love. May our Lord heal you and preserve your life eternally.

  48. Over the years, I have seen how Nan’s teachings (through public speaking or writings)have seem to parallel her life experiences. And although quite a number of those experiences have been painful, Nan has always seem to find God’s hand somewhere working in the midst. Sometimes protecting her from harms way and at other times allow trials and tribulations to come upon her; but He has never allowed them to overcome her… This too shall pass… God shall be glorified and Nan shall be honored once again for being a “good and faithful servant”. Amen

  49. Nancy I would like to take this time to Wish you and Chuck a Very Merry Christmas, May the Peace of God that passeth all understanding be in your hearts also his Love and Joy for this special time of the year that I know you and Chuck love. My Prayer is you will be healed completely and your pain managed by God in a way you mainly stay pain free. Agape Love to you dear Nancy and Chuck. God’s Blessing always xxx

  50. Dear Nan – My heart’s cry is for your healing, but you and I already have that. It began at the foot of the cross of Christ Jesus. I have no words of my own to give you. I just want to remind you of what you wrote in “Never Give Up” concerning mind renewal …. “is important because God wants us to see every situation He allows into our lives from His viewpoint and His perspective.” “God wants us to set aside our own thoughts, and trust our situation to His wisdom.” “God’s cycle of trust .. (Proverbs 3:5-6) “Whenever a negative, self-reflective thought comes in, instantly refuse it, reject it, and crucify it.” May we adore our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is coming back soon! I thank Him for you and Chuck; you have both been such a wonderful influence in my life and the life of my husband. I desire to be an “overcomer,” as I know you are. “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever!” Amen. Much about which to rejoice!

  51. Hi Mrs. Missler,

    Thank you for your works in our LORD and Saviour Jesus who is called Christ. I’ve just taken a few minutes away to pray for you, that Jesus may heal, restore and add to you more years not only for His sake according to the will of our Father in Heaven, but so you can continuously support Chuck with your constant love for him.

    God loves you indeed, and will continuously pray for you every time am offering supplications.

    May God’s Blessings abide in you.

  53. So touched by the video update, like I am sitting with you two chatting by the fireside! So personal and makes me feel I am a part of this family and the big family of God! Thank you for the video update and for including us in a very personal, hard time for Nancy, her family and the ministry. Thank you for Nancy’s transparency in her walk with God and sharing that experience with all of us out of love for others and that they would realize and know the LOVE of God is there for them no matter what they are going through!

Thanks for sharing God’s LOVE!

    Jeremiah 29:11

  54. Dear Nancy, Your husband has been such a blessing to me and then I started reading your book The Key, how to let go and let God it is a real help to know others have felt like I have felt. It is just what I needed. I too have had a very difficult marriage with many set backs over the years. Married now 51 plus years we are still together through God’s grace. I couldn’t love my husband even though I tried. He had hurt me too much. Your explanation of your struggle in marriage, I could relate to. I am learning a lot about myself and where I need to change.
    It seems God uses pain in our lives in the best way, to help others get through it. You certainly have had your share of trouble, now this cancer coming back! I think of you often and pray for you, your strength and comfort. I know God will walk with you through this painful experience and others will benefit. Hope is what we all need these days. I have gone through some deep depression and felt like God had left me. The depression is so awful that I feel like I am in a dark cave. I need that hope and encouragement to keep on. I know God is showing you how so you can tell us how.
    I love you sister,
    God be with you in very special ways.
    Love, Darlene

    • I too am learning so much and struggling to love my husband. I feel The Lord led me here and I need to get back into the Word–blessings and praying for u nancy

  55. Nancy, God allowed me to read your book on “Why should I be the First to Change” and it changed my life…even though my circumstances haven’t changed much you taught me how to let go and let God ( I read that one too) now I don’t stuff my feelings I experience them,repent and release them and then replace them with the truth of God’s word. This has been the most liberating tool for staying an open clean vessel for Gods love to flow through. I have shared this and your book with many other women. You are a tremendous blessing and I have also read “The Way of Agape” and I can hardly wait to read your next book “Hope Against Hope”. I too am a cancer survivor and thriver for 8 years by God’s grace – He is the giver and sustainer of life. I pray for you to be surrounded by our dear Lords ministering angels and for healing. As you know nothing is wasted with God, those He hurts deeply, He uses greatly. You are a beautiful woman!

  56. I have been touched by your ministry as well as your husband.
    I am praying for you in Colorado. God’s Will be done. Love in Christ; Until He Comes!

  57. Nancy,
    Thank you for suffering to receive from God what we need to hear.
    May you be delivered from all the enemy’s plans. May love and peace flood you and your family.

  58. Asparagus! Eat it a couple of times daily.
    Juice five times daily, carrots, beets, green(broccoli, green lettuce, spinach) and celery.
    Do not eat anything G-D didn’t make. Only little meat, veggies, lo- sugar fruit. No dairy, no sugar, no flour or grains!
    G-D bless you!


  60. Sending you love along with special prayers that this Christmas brings you health, joy, and every spiritual and worldly blessing!
    With appreciation and admiration for all your inspiration – in life and words, regarding the Word.
    Merry Christmas!!!

  61. Dearest Daughter of the KING,
    ll Corinthians 12:9b———–“For my strength is made perfect in weakness”.
    I am looking forward to reading, seeing, and desiring HIS perfect strength as I read
    your book Nancy. The power of Christ is resting upon YOU with every experience
    that makes you weak. Layer upon layer of power coming on you and what touches
    you first as you lay flat in weakness is your nose!! You are being EMPOWERED!!!

    You are LOVED, b

  62. Donna Joy and I have been daily putting you before the LORD.



  63. Dearest Nancy, we know that behind every great man of God stands/kneels a greater one called woman made especially for him – a true helpmeet who serves him prayerfully, meekly, and gratefully, as unto the Lord. The love of Father, the grace of the Lord Jesus, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be yours (and your family) in a very palpable way. Marta

  64. Nan, my heart just sank when I read that your cancer had returned. You and Chuck have both been such a blessing to me and I have learned so much from you since I became a Christian. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  65. Dear Nancy, Your books have given me a deeper knowledge of what it is to be
    completely broken in every way before the Lord our savior. While reading them one
    can tell you have lived what is written in those pages. The Lord will bless and keep you for your faithfulness to His word. I pray the Lord will completely heal you. Your life is a testimony to your faith and love for your savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you.

  66. Nan, I’m continuing to pray for you. I often listen to Joe Focht (CCPhilly) on I-Tunes on my laptop while I’m at my easel painting, and he has shared some incredible testimonies about healings that have taken place over the years in his congregation. Those always increase my faith and inspire me to pray without ceasing! Claire

  67. Dearest Nancy,
    You are in my prayers daily! All I can imation is that you are truly being tested and will gain a huge place in the millennium Kingdom, to rule and reign with Christ. You are a treasure to our Lord, and like Paul and the other apostles went through horrible times, but kept the faith and have a special place with the Lord. You will reign and rule big time!!! God be with you to maintain the strength to overcome.
    My love…in Christ.
    Marsha Groves

  68. Dear Nancy!
    You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    God bless you and keep you.
    Soul to soul,
    Debbie Earley
    OKC, OK

  69. Oh Nan! Whenever I think of you, I just see LOVE! A big, big HEART full of God’s love! God’s love pours through you to people like me because you seek God daily so you are a clean vessel, and as you would say “you don’t want to dirty others.” What an example! I am learning to recognize when I might dirty others and I am seeing when others are doing the dirtying. Helps me see people and myself with God’s eyes of grace! Lifting you and your family up in prayer during this difficult, hard time! Prayer is the ANSWER! May God just hold you tightly in HIS arms of LOVE! Love Sandy

  70. Nancy,

    Thank you so much for the book on Hope that you are preparing for the Body of Christ. I cannot fathom what you are going through as you do so. I had only a small, “reasonable” bout with cancer last year that was overcome with surgery and radiation. My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at the same time. Through his eyes I watched the things of earth become dim as the reality and glory and presence of the Eternal God grew within him. I was merely his helper and spiritual champion. I did not walk his road. This week my 91 year old mother fell and almost died. My husband and I have turned her home into a 24/7 nursing home and am watching as she comes to grips with her mortality. I know you may soon have to dictate what God is giving you, but that is ok. We need to hear what God is saying to you. Please press on. I cannot encourage you enough. So many of us needed this book “yesterday.” Many more will need it to comfort us and help us walk bravely in the days to come. My heart cry to God is to “finish well.” I know in my spirit that this book will help so much. The word of your testimony is a precious gift to all, especially those who know and love you and Chuck.

  71. God’s grace has healed me twice from deaths door, and in Him I pray for your healing.

  72. Nancy,
    We are keeping up the prayers for you. I rely on Romans 8:28, and Phil 4:6and7. We believe He is coming soon. He loves us, and He is a perfect father…….Dianne

  73. Dearest Nancy,

    I keep your website up on my computer and pray throughout the day for you and your recovery. Hugs and Kisses. All my love.
    Paula Martin

  74. My dear sister Nancy, I pray that that the creator send his healing and loving light your way and give you and your family strength to get through this time of personal trouble in the name of Yeshua. Amen


  75. I love and appreciate your work, on helping our youths in understanding the mind of God for our generation. God bless you so much in Jesus precious n wonderful name. Amen.

  76. Just want Nancy to know that we along with the Women’s Bible Study in Winnemucca, Nevada will be praying for a complete recovery for her. Misslers have been a very big part of our Bible Study for over 12 years! God Bless!

  77. Dearest Sissy,
    When i read of your heartbreaking news, the Spirit within me made intercession for you with groanings that cannot be uttered. Please know i also come along side you in Spirit praying our father pours out His grace, mercy, and peace as you walk with Him through this valley of the shadow. i continue to pray for His wisdom for you as well as healing.
    We are in His Grip.
    In His Love,
    CC Paradise CA

  78. Nancy,

    We are praying for you, and will have our church and everyone we know praying. My husband just had a biopsy on his nose come out ok this last month. He has prostate cancer in his bones though, and has had stage 4 for the last nine years. We believe in miracles. The Lord can come at any time, and we will praise Him as long as we have breath.

    I thank God for you my sister. We have seen what God can do.

    Dianne and Bill

  79. Dearest Nan:

    I am praying for you and believing for a miracle!!!!! You and Chuck are so dear to me and you’ll never know how much you’ve impacted my life.

    I am at rest in God alone;
    my salvation comes from Him.
    He alone is my rick and my salvation,
    my stronghold, I will never be shaken. (Ps. 62:1-2)

    Waiting for Him,

  80. Dear Nancy,
    I am enjoying The Kingdom and the Glory class for the 2nd time in a year at our church, Crossover, in Mead, Washington. I may even want to take it again down the road. Such a great work. Thank you and Chuck so much.
    Mary Ellen Sander

  81. Dear Nancy,

    I received with much sadness the recent news concerning your illness. Please know that you are in my prayers and in the prayers of my people here at Chapel-by-the-Sea Baptist Church.
    You will never know what a blessing you have been to me and the ministry God has given to me these many years. We first spoke to each other back in 2008 when you were working with Chuck putting together the material on the KINGDOM series. What a wonderful gift you both produced for the body of Christ. I thank you for all that you have done as you have followed the Lord’s leading in your life.
    Stay strong in the Lord. Let us pray for that miracle of healing and praise God for his many blessings.
    Thank You and Bless You,
    Pastor David Laughner
    Pastor, Chapel-by-the-Sea Baptist Church
    PO Box 235
    Tybee Island, GA. 31328

  82. Dear Friend-we have met only twice but your ministry and Chuck’s have been large in my walk with the LORD. Oh how human I am. I want to wrap you in my arms and make it all better but can only groan and take it to the Father who in His infinite wisdom has it all in hand and I trust Him that His will is being done and I can only petition and come along side in spirit and agreement. May He grant you supernatural favor, comfort,grace and mercy as only He can do.
    In His precious Name
    Jesus The Christ of Nazareth.
    Love and Blessings

  83. Dearly beloved Nancy,

    Just wanted to touch base and let you know personally that I continue to pray for your complete recovery. Love you, Paula Martin
