Roger Abels

Thanks for your prayers for retired GCI pastor Roger Abels (click here for the previous update). Here is a recent update from his daughter Courtney (Abels) Harmon:

Dad has improved slowly over the last couple of weeks [see pictures below]. The pneumonia has resolved, the trach [tracheostomy tube] has been removed, there has been a little movement in some fingers on the right hand, and he has taken several steps supported with a walker. [On February 9] Dad will be moving to a full-time rehab facility in hopes to regain strength and eventual use of limbs, hands and core. We are so thankful for God’s provision. Thanks again for your prayers and support!

  1. Dear Courtney,
    Thanks to our Lord God for stepping in for your dad! My wife and I want to thank you and your mom for being so supportive for your dad and keeping us informed for prayers sake. Tell you father that we are continuing in earnest prayer for his recovery, and as we see his smile along with yours it warms our hearts deeply! God’s Blessings with continued progress and please give our love expressed, to him. With love, David and Linda Husmann

  2. We’re praying for you regularly, Roger. Keep fighting! Those nurses may not realize there’s an athlete inside of that hospital gown. I remember when we brought our flag football team up from Muncie and beat you and the Ft. Wayne team by a score of 105 to 98, in the rain. I know what you’re capable of!
    We love you,
    Marty & Yvonne

  3. Psa.46:1 GOD is our refuge and our strength. We are thankful that HE showed HIMSELF mighty in this situation. We continue to pray for more and more manifestation of GOD’s promise of healing. Mr. Abels served the Kalamazoo area church faithfully for many years and we thank GOD for him and his family. GOD bless and continue to keep you all in HIS care. Love and best wishes from your friends in Kalamazoo, MI.

  4. Hang in there dear friend! You are gaining on it. HE will never leave you or forsake you.

    With our love, Ray and Carol Meyer
