• “The greatest satisfaction I can have is the knowledge that He is what He is; and that, being what He is, He never will be otherwise. If I am saved at last, it will be the free gift of God; since I have no worth and no merit of my own.” – Madame Guyon

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.'”

  • “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
