Willi and Ingrid Mandel

Retired GCI pastor Wilhelm (Willi) Mandel has been in and out of the hospital since May 18.  His system seems to have rejected the high blood pressure medication and has caused some serious health issues.

Though Willi’s heart continues to work effectively, his calcium count is high and he is waiting for surgery to remove one of his parathyroid glands (the parathyroid glands control the amount of calcium in the blood and bones). That surgery was scheduled for June 17. During recent exams, doctors discovered that Willi also has a lump under his breast bone. They will do a biopsy and possible further (potentially major) surgery once Willi has recovered from the first surgery.

Continued prayers for Willi and for his wife Ingrid are requested. Ingrid continues to suffer from severe back problems, made more serious by Willi’s recent health crisis.

  7. Dear Willi and Ingrid,

    I was sad to read about your health challenges. My wife and me as well as the congregation in Madrid are praying for your recovery and that you are filled with God’s peace and comfort and hope specially at this time of trial. I still keep good memories from you both of your serenity, graciousness and good sense of humor at our European conferences some years ago.

    Blessings and Love,
