Dan Lacey is with the Lord and now cancer free!

Dan Lacey, longtime missionary to France from our church, went home to be with the Lord today, after a very long, slow battle with cancer.  While the disease finally claimed his body, Dan won the battle.  He continued to minister right up to the end, and when the doctors told the family to come, they were able to be there as he passed into the Savior’s presence.

 Dan was a church planter, and the love he and Betty had for the people of France was so strong that not only did they decide to stay there through Dan’s illness, but some of their children have stayed, too.  He leaves behind a church family as well, and other churches whose leaders he has mentored and whose very life has been shaped by the ministry the Laceys have had.

Our prayers are with Betty and the children, knowing that they have a great sense of loss to adjust to.  But we must rejoice with Dan, who is enjoying the first moments of a forever that will be cancer and pain free.
