Alex is out of surgery and is now recovering! The valve is repaired and everything went well. Please continue to keep Alex and his family in your prayers.
Please pray for Alex Pettett, Director of World Witness, who was admitted to the hospital in Louisville, KY, this morning with tachycardia. After running a stress test, the doctors determined that a mild congenital heart defect had gotten worse. Alex is scheduled to have open heart surgery tomorrow morning at 7am to repair a valve that has torn. The surgery will be performed in Louisville.
Please pray also for his wife Jamie as she makes her way there and prepares for a potentially long stay. We will keep you updated on Alex’s condition.
Heiko Burklin is with Alex until Jamie’s arrival and will be acting as interim director.
