Update & Prayer for Pastor Matt Chandler
By now many have heard that Matt chandler (Pastor of the Village Church, Flower Mound, TX) had a seizure on Thanksgiving that sent him to the hospital. The doctors found a mass in his brain and an appointment was set up with a neurologist for today. The following is an update from the elders concerning his situation…
Update from our elders concerning Matt and his health:
Matt will undergo surgery Friday afternoon. Pastor Matt Chandler will have surgery Friday afternoon to remove a tumor located in the frontal lobe of his brain. The surgery will be performed by Dr. David Barnett. Dr. Barnett told Matt that he was positive about recovery but won’t know the full results until the surgery is performed. The doctor was uncertain about the malignancy of the tumor, and a biopsy will be performed as part of the surgery.
The outpouring of support and prayers from all over the world has been overwhelming to Matt and Lauren. Continue to pray and fast on behalf of the family. The church’s monthly prayer service will be Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Highland Village, Denton and Dallas Northway worship centers. We encourage you to fast throughout that day and join us to pray that evening. If you cannot join us, pray wherever you are.
We continue to rest in the knowledge that Matt is in the sovereign hand of our heavenly Father who loves him immensely more than we can comprehend, and He alone understands the reasons for this trial. Along with your prayers, continue to give Matt and Lauren and their family time and space for their continued rest.
I just wanted to send this out to continue to rally prayer support for Matt and his family during this time… More information and updates can be found at http://hv.thevillagechurch.net/
