Please Pray for Doug & Margaret Nichols

I received this note today from Doug Nichols, founder of ACTION International, and a great friend to the poor and needy of the world:

“Tomorrow, May 22, I have surgery for what they expect to be bladder cancer.  If it is serious, the doctors plan another surgery in 2 or 3 weeks and chemotherapy will follow. A passage of Scripture that has really encouraged me through this is Psalm 62:5-8 (nasb), “My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.On God my salvation and my glory rest; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.”

Please join me in praying for Doug and Margaret.  To read more about their ministry you can visit Doug’s page at ACTION International.


  1. We are praying for you, Margie and your family.

  2. Update from Doug’s assistant Candi: Doug did not get into surgery until after 4 pm. Everything went well; there were no surprises. The tumor had not blocked a duct that the surgeon thought it might have; they did not have to put in a shunt. He was headed home tonight and will get the pathology report June 1.

    Thank you for praying.
