A Chance to Do a Work of Mercy

*and* score some music from a fine musician! Audrey Assad writes:

As many of you may know, my husband was diagnosed in September 2011 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We were really glad to know it was such a treatable cancer, but it was cancer nonetheless! Billy just finished 6 months of chemotherapy, which came at a high price, even with insurance. Instead of asking for donations from friends and family to help us offset these costs, we decided to (with the help of some good folks in Nashville and Arizona) produce a little EP called The Cancer Year. You can read the story/hear more about the project here. Of course, there is no expectation on our part beyond your prayers and well wishes. However, since many have asked how they can assist us, we are reaching out to spread the word about this little opportunity. Peace to all of you.

My wife and I had the chance to have coffee with Audrey and Billy last year when they were in Seattle briefly. Lovely people. If you can help them with your prayers and/or purchases, please do.

    People still have turntables to play an EP on?

    Thanks, Mark! I have both of Audrey’s albums so I’m a fan! Was not aware of this project or link, so thanks!
