Slain Missionary Predicted Last Days in Mexico

Following the recent murder of American missionary Nancy Davis, some missionaries have reconsidered working in Mexico.

Davis was shot in the head Wednesday while fleeing from suspected drug cartel gunmen. Her husband raced to the border for help, but it was too late.

“We got a call here at the school from a friend that was requesting prayer for the Davises, that they were at that point being pursued,” said Merton Rundell, a family friend.

Due to escalating drug violence there, Davis had predicted she might not make it out of the country alive.

Davis and her husband Sam regularly received threats and were forced to flee danger time and again. Yet, friends and family said the Davises were pursuing their passion, planning churches and spreading the gospel.

Nancy loved to compose and perform music. She was also a registered nurse.

“She was a phenomenal woman and every patient she ever had she talked about God and dealt with their soul,” said Melody Davis Reynolds, Davis’ niece.

Some missionaries have stopped going into Mexico because of the growing drug violence. Police think the Davises were targeted because of their truck — a valuable commodity among drug traffickers.

“We haven’t officially sat down to say what is our policy, but our informal policy is, ‘Don’t just abandoned those people. They need help — maybe now more than ever,'” said Mark Rotramel, moderator for the Rio Grande Valley Baptists Association.

Davis’ son Joseph said his mother died doing what she loved.

“Time after time, what made her the happiest, was seeing somebody hit their knees and come up forgiven for whatever they’ve done – murder, rape, the smallest sin,” he said. “She’d come home so happy. She’d say, ‘Well, we stole another one from the devil today.'”

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914

Verse of the Day

[The Last Enemy Destroyed] But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 (NKJV)
