This is a Love Offering for Robert Vail. The funds will be used to offset medical expenses not covered by Medicare.

A family member, Robert, had an unexpected gallbladder rupture yesterday, 9/4/12. The doctors are performing emergency surgery tomorrow, and if he survives the surgery, all should be well. The last time he was under anesthesia though, his body reacted very badly and he went under severe cardiac arrest, losing about 1/3 of his lung capacity to lost oxygen, nearly killing him. We are praying his body reacts better to this major surgery.

He has Medicare, but that only pays for 80% of an approximated $100,000 medical bill. He supports his wife and extended family members (children and grandchildren) on extremely limited disability checks, and this mere $20,000 bill would be a lifetime of debt for he and his family.

As the Church, I thought it would be a huge blessing to give a small love offering to help offset the initial payments. His family is Christian, but they have been hurt by the church recently and are unsure about a lot of things right now. They are really loving people that live simply and just want to love God to the best of their abilities. I think prayer over his big surgery tomorrow and a couple hundred dollars of a love offering will speak VOLUMES to his family about the love of Christ through the Church. I don't think this gallbladder rupture happened on accident, and I believe that some amazing things can happen through God.

It would be really amazing if each of you could donate just $5 tonight so that tomorrow before the surgery we can donate to them a small love offering. This website is secure and you can donate anonymously, but we of course will let them know that it is the Church wanting to bless them out of love :-)
