Just days after Christian author Randy Alcorn's family gathered together, he announced his wife has died.
"Nanci is with Jesus," Alcorn wrote of his wife Nanci, who died of colon cancer. "So happy for her. Sad for us. But the happiness for her triumphs over the sadness. Grieving is ahead, and it will be hard, but these last years and especially this last month have given us a headstart on the grieving process."
The "Heaven" author posted a sweet tribute to Twitter Monday evening:
I am so proud of my wife for her dependence on Jesus and her absolute trust in the sovereign plan and love of God. Nanci is and always will be an inspiration to me.— Randy Alcorn (@randyalcorn) March 28, 2022
I am with family and friends now, thanking God for His grace and the promises of Jesus that we will live with Him forever in a world without the curse, and He will wipe away all the tears and all the reasons for the tears.— Randy Alcorn (@randyalcorn) March 28, 2022
Alcorn expressed gratitude for those who have been praying for Nanci, reassuring them they should not feel their prayers were unanswered. He explained that many of them were, in fact, answered, and "many others were answered in a better way than we could ever ask."
He ended his Twitter thread by writing he is "overwhelmed with gratitude to the One full of grace and truth."
