Voddie Bauchum updated his social media accounts, informing friends and supporters that he and his wife were stuck in Dallas in the snowstorm after enduring the 16-hour flight from Doha. With the final flight from Texas to Florida being canceled on account of the inclement weather, he explains that they have experienced loss of power in the residence they are staying in, but were hopeful there was a flight they could catch that would see them settled in the hospital late last night or early this morning.
The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida is one of the health network’s three campuses in the United States. They are a world-class hospital that treats over a million people each year from over 140 countries, handling revenues of 12 billion dollars. They are considered one of the very best, particularly in the specialization of cardiology and heart surgery, and are known for their high level of care and success rate for treatment.
Not only will doctors have to run a battery of tests to assess the state of Voddie’s heart, but ministry partner Tom Ascol informs that he is also suffering from kidney disease which is compounding the issue, and which will result in astronomical costs for both the surgery itself, as well as the aftercare.
With his GoFundMe having raised $1,155,320 of his $1,250,000 target at the time of this writing, words of gratitude and encouragement continue to pour in from grateful “blessers,” with a common theme being the way Voddie has stayed faithful in preaching the Gospel over a period of years and decades.
Continue to pray for him and his family.
