A crowdfunding appeal has raised over a million dollars towards the medical expenses of popular preacher and writer Voddie Baucham who is battling “full-blown” heart failure.

Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, told supporters on Facebook: “Brethren, if you have ever considered supporting us in prayer, please do so now.

“We are walking through the darkest valley we have ever faced. Not only have we experienced a great deal of loss in recent weeks, but we are also facing a family health crisis.”

He said he started to feel unwell during his last speaking tour, with symptoms including shortness of breath and fatigue. With 17 preaching dates in 18 days, he thought he had “worked too hard.”

“However, as it turns out, I was experiencing heart failure!” he said.

He flew to the US for medical treatment earlier this week, eventually reaching Jacksonville, Florida, after battling through the devastating snow storm that hit Texas.

GoFundMe campaign set up to help with medical expenses has raised nearly $1.3m in just the first five days, surpassing the estimated $1m cost of his treatment.
