Journey Through Challenges
Pastor John Gray and his wife, Aventer Gray, have suffered together and supported each other. During Aventer's health struggles and John's recent health crisis, their love and faith have endured.
Aventer Gray's Struggle Against Cancer
In April 2014, Pastor John Gray posted a heartfelt message on Facebook, asking for prayers. He was worried about his wife, Aventer, who had some lumps on her thyroid that seemed like they could be cancer. John's message said, "I pray in Jesus' name to stop cancer, and I ask for prayers from those who believe in miracles."
This was really hard for both of them, especially because their son had been sick before. But they stayed strong in their faith. John boldly said, "I'm telling the devil to stop hurting my family and leave God's people alone! In Jesus' name! Amen. Love you all."
Thankfully, Aventer's surgery to remove the lumps went well, and she got better. Since then, there hasn't been any news of the cancer coming back. She's been living a healthy life with her husband and kids.
John Gray's Recent Health Crisis
Now, let's fast forward to July 2022, when Pastor John Gray faced a severe health problem. His wife, Aventer, went on Instagram to tell their followers the scary news. She said that on July 7th, her husband was rushed to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) because he had something called a "saddle pulmonary embolism."
A saddle pulmonary embolism is a very dangerous condition where a big blood clot gets stuck in a big lung tube. It's a big deal, and doctors need to act fast. Aventer explained that John's clot was in a tricky spot that could have been deadly if it moved.
She explained that John had been feeling sick for a few weeks before going to the hospital. But once he got to the emergency room, things got serious, and he had to go to the CCU because of the clot and some more blood clots in his lungs.
A Marvelous Path to Recovery
Aventer's request for prayers came from the heart because the situation was really, really serious. She said that based on what the doctors said, John needed two kinds of surgeries within the next 24 hours to take the pressure off his heart. The doctor told her that people who come to the hospital with this exact problem are usually in very bad shape.
The surgeries were risky, and John couldn't even move, not even to go to the bathroom. It was a really tough moment, and they needed strong faith and everyone's prayers.
