Horn Family Update

Beth Horn, the wife of Northland's Dr. Sam Horn, is currently being treated for cancer. After completing chemotherapy treatments, she will be undergoing multiple radiation treatments as well. But still she faithfully ministers in the home, at their church, and teaches a Spanish class at Northland. You can read the latest report here, of which the following is an excerpt.
We don’t know what the future holds but Beth is helping me learn that today is the best day in which to serve the Lord since we are not promised tomorrow. Her doctors are still holding out a fairly positive outlook in that she has about a 60 to 70 percent chance of survival after all the treatments. This may seem dismal until one reflects on the original picture we were facing not too many months ago. We are confident that our lives are in His hands and we are not a statistic to Him.
