Willi Mandel

This is an update to a previous prayer request for retired GCI pastor Willi Mandel and his wife Ingrid. 

Willi thanks everyone for their prayers and cards. His thoracic surgeon says that the lump under Willi’s breast bone is a thynoma—a type of tumor. It could be new or something he’s had for a long time; it could be benign or malignant. The doctor gave him three options: 1) surgery to remove the tumor (the surgery would be similar to open-heart surgery, with a long recovery period);  2) chemotherapy to shrink the tumor (assuming it’s cancerous); 3) another cat scan in about 6 to 9 months, then make a decision about further treatment. Willi and Ingrid have opted for the third option, since Willi has no current symptoms or problems related to the tumor.

Thanks for your continued prayer for Willi and Ingrid. Cards may be sent to:

  1. Dear Wilhelm and Ingrid,

    You occupy a fond place in our hearts and prayers.

    We have not forgotten the clear support you gave to our denominational leadership as a senior pastor in Germany and Austria during our 1990’s crisis. It sure was a difficult period in our history but, thanks be to God, look how far we have come!

    May our Lord lead you to make all the right health decisions.

    In Christ,
    Santiago and Elke

  2. You are both in our thoughts and prayers. We missed you at the Edmonton conference and church reunion. Many people asked about you. May God bless you both according to his will
    With love from Dennis & Norma

  3. Bonjour to you both,

    We will share with the brethren at church today and we will continue pray for you both.

    Eric and Edna
