Robert Morris, founding pastor of the 39,000-member Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, is in “stable” condition after being careflighted to the hospital for emergency surgery, his church has revealed.
In an update posted on the Gateway Church official Facebook page, church staff said that after contracting “some type of infection” stemming from a routine surgery, Morris was forced to undergo another surgery on Sunday to stop some internal blood loss.
“Pastor Robert’s surgery was successful in stopping the bleeding,” church staff noted. “Please continue to pray for no more bleeding and a quick and full recovery. Thank you all again for praying for him, Pastor Debbie, and the family. Your prayers are working!”
Following the surgery, Morris underwent an angiogram procedure to check for any additional bleeding.
“Everything went well and he is back in recovery,” reads another Facebook update. “Keep those prayers coming as we ask the Lord for complete healing! We are so grateful for all the prayers and support you all have given for our pastor. We will post updates on this picture as we get them to keep you all informed. ‘Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones.’ – Proverbs 3:8.”
Morris’ wife, Debbie, also shared updates regarding her husband’s health on her Instagram page.
“Thank you everyone for praying,” she captioned a photo of church staff praying together. “@psrobertmorris is recovering from an angiogram. I am happy to report that they didn’t find any active bleeding areas. Praise God!”
