Debbie Young

Here is an update from Charles Young, lead pastor of GCI’s Atlanta congregation, concerning his wife Debbie (click here for an earlier update).

Deb recently received the results of a biopsy conducted on July 1. It confirmed she has dermatomyositis (a rare inflammatory disease) and fibromyalgia (a chronic pain condition). Though incurable, dermatomyositis can be treated, though we are not thrilled with the treatment that has been prescribed for Deb. The drugs can open up the possibility of a whole lot of very bad side effects. We will be looking into other treatment options.

Just recently I had to leave work because Deb had fallen at home and was unable to get back up. The illness causes pain and weakens the muscles.

We are deeply grateful for all of your prayers. God is faithful and his mercy endures forever.
