HeartCry Missionary Paul Washer Expected to Be Released From Hospital by Weekend
After suffering a massive heart attack and forced to undergo emergency surgery on Monday night, founder, director and missions coordinator of HeartCry Missionary Society, Paul Washer, is expected to be released from the hospital by the weekend.
Beyond praying for Washer, some of his supporters have also tried to establish funding campaigns to help with his recovery, but his team explained on social media that they were not seeking to raise any money.
"Please note: We are not raising funds for Paul through any medium," noted one statement on Facebook.
Hite explained that he posted the message because, "There have been many cases where unscrupulous people use Paul's name to try to make money for themselves. And Paul very clearly has never ever solicited funds from anyone for himself or for HeartCry."...

Yes-I took it as on topic. & prayed for all y'all( with personal experience of how life threatening dental problems are) IMO Prayer requests for Horrible! dental problems fit into life threatening emergency as much as heart attack & stroke.
I should strive to be one of those who others will find confident to share troubles & prayer requests- and not just sing happy tunes when a somber note is needed.
Pr25:19Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint. 20As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart. -- chemistry of Pr25:20 ="reactIon of noise and a hissing" from ancient nitre & vinegar - Sometimes we interact that way with a bit of "bad chemistry"
Diane, my original post was a prayer request. Not off topic considering a man was just revived from thousands of prayers. Maybe you think having shards in your mouth is disgusting, well welcome to ministry, something Paul Washer himself would praise and encourage to promote. People stopped what they were doing and prayed for us, they made something casual on a forum nobody cares about, we found out about a terrible situation about Gay, and a picture into the life of (her?) family. A picture of what many thousands experience everyday. God bless you with repentance as Paul Washer would say and have a good day.
May the Lord bring brother Paul to a full recovery. One of his best sermons, by far, is the ten indictments against the modern church -http://www.chapellibrary.org/files/3813/7658/4069/tiat.pdf
"I submit to you that this country is not Gospel hardened; it is Gospel ignorant, because most of its preachers are. Let me repeat this. The malady in this country is not liberal politicians, the root of socialism, Hollywood, or anything else. It is the so-called evangelical pastor, preacher, or evangelist of our day; that is where the malady is to be found. We do not know the Gospel. We have taken the glorious Gospel of our blessed God and reduced it down to four spiritual laws, and five things God wants you to know, with a little superstitious prayer at the end. And if someone repeats it after us with enough sincerity, we popishly declare them to be born again! We have traded regeneration for decisionism." - Paul Washer, from 'ten indictments against the modern church'
Why do some people consistently make comments that are completely off the topic. This is about Paul Washer not your teeth. So thankful the Lord is bringing him back to health. We need more like Bro Paul in this day and age.
One of the problems of being filled to overflowing with the Spirit is that although the spiritual side is invincible, strong and courageous, the poor body is still a poor body at best, and prone to malfunction if too much is attempted. Look at what happened to that amazing preacher of the gospel George Whitefield.
Yes, sorry about the issues the both of you have. Teeth don't just rot and fall apart though at such relatively young ages. I had a similar experience once. The one tooth I ever had to have pulled, a rear molar, was a nightmare. After an hour, and 20+ shots of Novacaine, she insisted on pulling, saying I must be numb but just didn't realize it. Turns out the tooth was infected so the numbing agent was useless. She pulled and pulled as I shrieked in pain each time. She got the tooth half was out, I grabbed her arm and said, "What's wrong with you?", in a not so nice way. Had to push the tooth back down and wait for the infection to subside and eat with one side of my mouth for the next two weeks. Nightmare. Now I know what it must have been like in the olden days. Ouch.
so i went to a dentist, they said 6 teeth for 12k RMB, but because I am a believer in Jesus, they said i only need to pay 7k RMB, really a blessing. She shared how during the depression years of china, someone helped her and now she does her best to help her.family in the Lord.
(TMC) Praying for a speedy recovery and may his Lord continue to use him for many years to come! @Gay Allen Sorry to hear about your tooth trouble. Any tribulations (before or after any planets align) that the Lord soverignly brings into our lives are for our good and His glory, and must be endured through His strength, not our own! ‚ÄúAnd he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.‚ÄĚ ~2 Corinthians 12:9-10 @Youth in Asia I pray all will go well with your dental visit!
this is the second time my teeth went to shards and lacerated my mouth, i had all my molars extracted (i was so lucky to get to that abusive dentist) by an angry ex army dentist whom told the nurse in dental OR (operating room) that i needed surgery that i was not going to get because he was overbooked that day, and that he was impatient and ANGRY with me and did not wait till the shots numbed me and started ripping the teeth out, i left that office shaking and bleeding from the mouth hysterical, could not stop shaking for an hour, must have looked a fright with bloody mouth and bugged out eyes on a city buss going home shaking like a whipped dog ... i think of that and how i got beat so bad that i dissociated during the beating and i wonder how you all will fare during the tribulation starting on sept 23
revelation 12 sign is about to appear in the heavens~!
google this and study it, i'm not sure this is the good video i found or just a video i found, but the planets are aligning on sept 23 this year~!
Ok Allen. I pray an opportunity comes for your family to fix that. A bible professor here in China will take me to a Christian dentist tomorrow. The local Seven Day Adventist say the can help a little with the cost, I am blessed.
