Thank you for praying for Lyndell Campbell. She has given us an update as to her father’s condition (Feb. 27’21). See below:
Hello Family and Friends!
We are so thankful for your prayers and we are praising the Lord for his answers! The latest news is Dad is eating food! He is also walking a lot in the mornings with a walker. He is still feeling tired and sore. Today when Mom went to visit she noticed his stomach was swollen. The nurses aren’t sure why but he had some tests done this morning, so hopefully the doctor can find out what is going on and let Dad know on his rounds tomorrow morning. The nurses did say if it’s fluid it can be easily taken care of. They also took one of his two IVs out and another one of several tubes he has been hooked up to. He is hoping that will make it easier to sleep tonight.
Mom had her first Covid vaccine today! And she has had no side effects. Another reason to praise the Lord! She will stay home tomorrow to get the apartment ready for when Dad is able to come home. They are both really missing each other.
Thank you so much for journeying with us in prayer! Please pray that the swelling in Dad’s stomach area is nothing serious and can be easily dealt with. Thanks so much! Blessings,
The following is a letter from Lyndell Campbell (NAB Missionary to Brazil) asking for prayer. A recent good-news update (Feb 18’21) is that her father is now stable and doing well!
I hope you are all well.
Well, the last 24 hours have not been at all like I expected. It is Carnaval here in Brazil and while
all the events were canceled, it is a two day holiday. I had planned to use the time to study a lot,
and then I received a message from my Mom, Marg Campbell.
Yesterday, my Dad, Curtis Campbell, was taken by ambulance to the University of Alberta
Hospital. Today he had surgery for a blockage in his bile duct. Tonight we were told they ended
up removing 25% of his liver and his gallbladder. He is currently in ICU because of concerns
over his blood pressure and he needed oxygen. Tomorrow we will learn more details.
I would be so grateful if you could pray that my Dad would make a full recovery. Also, please
pray for my Mom. Even though my sister lives close by, she works with the public, and so she is
avoiding being with my Mom in person because my Mom is in a high risk group. And please
pray for me. It is hard to be so far away from my family at a time like this.
I believe and trust in my Lord and I know He is in control. I am also so thankful to you for
standing with my family in prayer.
When I have more information, I will send it.
