PERSONAL STATEMENT FROM CONNIE HOPPER
August 24, 2014
I just wanted to drop a note of gratitude for your kindness and encouragement throughout the years. With respect to that unmatched support, I wish to respond to recent inquiries and concerns.
Simply put, during my annual mammogram, the doctor discovered a small malignant mass. Because of our family's past experience with this disease and knowing the emotional toll it can take, they asked that we postpone a few concerts as to be with me during the time of my tests. Nothin' like good family support.
Yes, plans of surgery are already in motion and all doctors are beyond optimistic! Oswald Chambers wrote, "Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work."
We greatly appreciate your understanding of any time off I may need to take, and sincerely covet your prayers.
Once more, I thank you.
We just saw them last night, and I'm definitely surprised this morning to learn this. The family had to be going through so many emotions, and they ministered and glorified God through it all. They never let it show what they were going through. Definitely keep Connie and the Hoppers in your prayers.
