The following prayer request is from Rand Holm, a GCI pastor in Southern California.
Following a minor heart attack last Saturday night, GCI assistant pastor Carlton Green was treated at Valley Presbyterian hospital in Van Nuys, CA. Doctors performed an angiogram and found two blocked arteries. One was able to be completely cleared and a single stint was placed in it. The other one was calcified and could not be cleared. The good news about the artery that was not able to be cleared is that it had slowly closed off long ago and new arteries and veins were recruited and have grown sufficiently, and so that it is fine.
That open heart surgery was not called for is, in itself, a miracle from God. If the cardiologist had tried to clear the calcified artery first, he may have scheduled Carlton for bypass surgery. But that was not needed and he is now doing well, without pain, and with a new super highway in his heart! For a few days he was ministering encouragement and the love of God to ambulance drivers, nurses, doctors, janitors, visitors and pastors at the hospital.
Now he is resting at home, and tells me that, “he’s as happy as a baby boy.” He deeply appreciates all the prayers, and feels greatly blessed by the love shown him by his church family. He also expressed how nice it is to be home with Judith, and again he noted how wonderful it is to have superb medical facilities in this country.“We praise you Lord God above for all your precious gifts. Thank you for preserving the life of one we love so much. Please continue to heal and bless the work the doctors have done for Carlton and bring him back to all of us soon and comfort and strengthen Judy and the whole Green family. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen.”

Mr & Mrs Green:
I attended Ambassador in Big Sandy and graduated in 1974 and I remember doing kitchen duty with Mr.Green. What a wonderful man! I really enjoyed meeting and working with you those many years ago and am so thankful for your continued service to our Savior. Take care of yourself. Many prayers and love accompany this email.
Hello Carlton and Judy. It is good to hear about the amazing recovery from your heart condition, Carlton. Brought back memories of the sermon you gave in Mumbai thirty-one years ago about the healing of your child when she was sick.
We pray that God will continue to bless you and keep you in good health so you can continue to be an encouragement to others. With love, Joanna & Joe D’Costa, Bangalore, India
Dear Carlton and Judith – Praying for a complete recovery for you and strength and encouragement from the Holy Spirit for you both. Happy memories of the “foodie” days we used to enjoy – and your kindness to that little girl – Joanne – you took under your wing in the Pasadena kitchens while Joyce and I were busy elsewhere! You’ll need plenty of that nourishment now as you continue to enjoy God’s miracle of healing.
Dear Mr. Green,
We are very happy to hear that the procedure on your heart went well. May God, through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, keep you snuggled close in His loving and healing arms during your recovery.
In Christian Love

Hi my friends. Nadia, John and I were suprised to see the request for prayers for you. I know that God has once again seen you both through this.
Nadia’s reaction was, “Not Mr. Green, my favorite!!” Our prayers continue to go to God for your full recovery. I send you email and “air” hugs and kisses to you both. Love you always, Rachel
