As many of you already know, Pastor Rich has been in the hospital since Feb 4th suffering the aftermath of covid 19. As a result of the type of pneumonia that covid causes, his lungs have been riddled with "covid scarring" and this has left him unable to breath effectively. As of today, he is on a machine called ECMO, which is a type of life support system that circulates blood outside of your body to a heart-lung machine that removes carbon dioxide and sends oxygen-filled blood back to tissues in the body. Not only has this saved him from having to go on the ventilator but he is also feeling much better as well. We are very thankful for the wisdom and provision that God is providing to Pastor's doctoral & nursing staff.
Due to how critical his current situation is, Pastor Rich has been going through a number of evaluations for a lung transplant. Pastor & Lou have both prayed about this, alongside their children, and decided this was the way they needed to go. As a result, the lung teams are meeting today to decide whether or not they will be putting him on the Lung Transplant list.
We are asking for you to keep Pastor Rich and Pastor Lou in your prayers. We are believing that God is going to heal Pastor Rich completely and we have our complete trust in Him. They have a long journey ahead of them, but with God we know it will all be good.
We know Pastor Rich will be healed in Jesus name because we trust in Jehovah Rapha, the Lord that heals!
