On Wednesday, May 20th, Pastor Austin Gardner was taken to the hospital by ambulance because he had very low oxygen levels. He was admitted into the ICU and is being treated for pneumonia and COVID-19. He is in serious condition and could use your prayers.
It is time to mobilize all our prayer warriors to pray for my pastor and friend. He is a man of God who has helped so many of us. I know he would do the same thing for me if I was in his situation.
As I sit here in Taiwan, in relative safety and health, my heart is broken for my mentor. I feel helpless, but I know I can pray. I believe God still has much for him to do here on this earth, thus let us pray! Will you join me in prayer?
- Pray for God to heal his body. To restore and sustain his health.
- Pray for wisdom for the doctors to give the right treatment.
- Pray for a peace that passes all understanding and a strong faith that continues to reject anxiety and panic.
- Pray for comfort for the family (and all whom this affects), especially since they can’t be together at this time and family that is on the mission field.
Thank you for praying!
In His Joyful Service,
