Jason To Have Open Heart Surgery

On Wednesday morning of December 18th, our lives will be changed for awhile. 

Jason is scheduled to have open heart surgery at Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA.  It has been discovered that he has a birth defect of a Myo Cardio Bridge.  This bridge has been restricting over 90% blood flow to the main artery every time the heart beats.  We’ve placed our fears, our doubts, our lives in the Master Physician’s Hand. 

This surgery will impact everyone around us.  Kelly will need the prayers and support as she takes on more responsibility at home and managing the road, office.  Our son-in-law Nathan, will be flying in/out weekly to help us all the while he continues to work at his own ministry position in Washington. 

Since Jason helps a lot with the driving we will have to hire an extra person to cover the long overdrives while He is unable to do so. 

Jason’s mother Linda will be flying to GA to help take care of him when the group returns to the road, and she will be paying out of pocket for nurses to care for her two Alzheimer’s patients.  Also Jason’s dad is going through daily dialysis will be home alone and will need prayer for strength. 

Please pray for everyone around us and for the extra expenses of having them in place to keep our ministry and home going. 

We are specifically asking for them to be favored and prospered for their sacrifice, their needs to be met in abundance, their strength, and patience. 

Please pray with us over the following: 

1- May God receive glory in many ways through out this journey, and that the family would know the peace of God. 

2- Please pray for the Surgeon and her staff, Doctor Theresa Luu. 

3- Please pray for the Nelon’s and all the staff and all those who are sacrificing so much to help us get through this. 

4- Please pray for a full recovery for Jason and that God would grant Him many more years of ministry. 

5- Please pray for God’s supernatural provision as the hospital bills mount up, insurance premiums rise, and the costs of hiring extra support and employees during this difficult time.

We love you and your prayers are felt every moment right now.  Please don’t stop praying and please know we will keep on as long as the Lord wills.... 

Kelly, Jason, Amber, and Autumn
