Please keep Pastor Carl in your prayers. His new kidney is working wonderfully, however his immune system is suppressed by 80% and he cannot be around crowds of people. Lord willing, he and Alice will be back in service on the weekend of the 17th and 18th to speak the final message of the love series!

Pastor Carl’s new kidney is functioning beyond our expectations!
Aside from the normal recovery from surgery, he is doing well.
He and Alice want to thank everyone for all of your prayers, cards, and gifts.

As expected, Pastor Carl was officially released from the hospital yesterday. He is doing well.
Due to good doctor reports and healthy charts, Michelle Rhea was also discharged yesterday.

all my inmost being, praise His holy name!!”

Pastor Carl is still making a healthy recovery with the new kidney at work in his body.
As of earlier this morning, he is up and walking.
Michelle Rhea is recovering quite nicely, walking and expecting to go home from the hospital Friday afternoon.
The Stephens, Bland, and Rhea families as well as everyone here at Faith Assembly are continuing to praise God through this entire process.

Pastor Carl successfully received his kidney transplant today as scheduled.
Michelle, his kidney donor and niece, got out of her surgery around 10:30 am this morning and is expected to make a quick recovery.
Just after noon, doctors reported a successful transplant, and the kidney is already working wonderfully in Pastor Carl’s body.
Continue praying for peace for the Stephens family; wisdom for the doctors; as well as strength and a speedy recovery for Pastor Carl.
