Update #1: From Voddie’s Instagram a few minutes ago.
The Lord saw fit to open a door at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. But before I could get to my appointment, things took a turn for the worse. I ended up in the ER, and was subsequently admitted.
Someday, I’ll tell the whole story of how the Lord shepherded us here, but for now, I’ll just say we are grateful to be where we are.
Up to this point we have been playing defense (i.e. don’t die!). Now we go on offense (find the problem and fix it).
Thank you for praying and for your words of encouragement. This journey is a long way from over, but we are grateful for every step.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,” (Ephesians 1:3 ESV)
Voddie Baucham has managed to leave Texas, which has been overwhelmed by snow and grid shortages that left millions without power, and has made it to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, where he is receiving treatment from doctors for his heart failure and kidney problems.
There had been doubt he would be able to get there sooner, given the turbulent journey it has already been, as well as all the destruction the weather is leaving in its wake. Baucham wrote yesterday that they had to “pivot” from their plans when their initial flight was canceled but hoped to find another one later that evening. He further told supporters:
Pray the weather holds up. Pray our strength holds up. Pray my dear wife holds up! Pray our faith holds up. Pray we don’t waste these trials, but learn from them.
Tom Ascol, a long-time ministry partner who organized the GoFundMe for Baucham, which has now surpassed 1.25 million dollars, updated both the funds raised and his own Twitter feed to give the news.
The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville is one of the health network’s three campuses in the United States. They are a world-class hospital that is 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.
We will update this specific post over the course of the day.
Please continue to pray for Voddie and his family.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.
Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year. Instead of you scouring the news, let our Gideon Knox News team do the news-hunting FOR YOU and it will save you time finding real news.
And finally, you can give a one time financial gift through Giving Fuel . It's also super-easy to set up and takes only minutes.
