Pray for Jerry Young

The following was sent out Sunday, January 17, by Scott Distler, the pastor of the Grace Brethren church in Lititz, Pennsylvania, which Jerry Young pastored for many years prior to his retirement:

Special Prayer Request

January 17, 2010

Please be praying today and this week for Dr. Jerry Young. For those who are new to our church family over the past 5 years, Dr Young was the Senior Pastor here at Grace Church for 33 years before he retired in 2004. He now lives in Arizona with his precious wife, Loreen. Dr Young poured himself into this ministry giving us a very strong foundation to continue to build upon today. I very much appreciate his faithful service in the past and his encouraging support still today.

Dr. Young was taken to the emergency room in Arizona on Saturday evening with severe abdominal pain. At this point they believe he has a "blocked bile duct". They will be doing more tests later today (Sunday) and even more tests on Tuesday with the very real possibility of surgery taking place later this week. Thank you for your prayers for Dr Young and Loreen (and their children and grandchildren). The family is keeping me updated and I will be sure to pass on those updates to you as well.
