Need prayers for the pastor of our little church here in Cordova, Alaska. Pretty much my best friend and leader of our flock here had a stroke today, and i just got home from loading him on a medivac plane heading to a real hospital in Anchorage... Please pray for him... His name is Gary, and his wife's name is LaRue.....

Thanks brothers and sisters...

Prayers for Gary and his family. My wife had a severe storke at work in 1999. Her office was right across the hall from emrgency room at the University of Ia Hospital other wise she would not have survived. Pastors give a lifetime for others so now its our turn to return the prayers. Keep us posted on his condition.

Well, They did an MRI to ***** the damage.. Dont know the details yet.... He is confused and disorientated, but passed the swllow test, whatever that is... Please pray for him.. he is just 57 years old.... Gods will be done.... He did actually have 2 strokes though, one here, and one while he was in the hospital last night.... I also found out that his speech is doing a bit better, more clear, and he had some speech therapy.... stroke happened due to some sort of blockage.. Possibly a clot...

Looks like pastor is going to be comming home. I guess the good lord aint done with him yet... His speech has cleared up and his mind has cleared, but he will be in a chair for a while.... Prognossis looks ok i guess... He wont be able to get around much as they took his driving license away, but he can still preach and spread the word.... His lifes work...

I just love this man, he has made a huge difference in my life, and I thank you for all your prayers and support...

Thank you Lord! I'm praying for full recovery. My son's pastor went through the same and was not as well this soon, but now is almost 100% after two years.

AG, Gary is a fortunite pastor to have a Caleb come beside him to hold him up and help. with support from folks like you and the help of our Lord he will recover. could not imagine not being able to share the word with those in need of food. our prayers are with Gary and You as you help and minister to your Pastor.

Thanks Jim.... He was back to preaching this sunday... And has been able to stand up and walk around a bit... It is amazing how gods will just happens.... This pastor is in the middle of a winder long teaching series on revelation... And we are almost done with it... The lord must want him to at least finish it... :). I am sooooo glad...

Thanks again all for all the prayers
