As the result of a significantly life-threatening episode of acute myocarditis in 2002, I took early retirement from active ministry. I have made a remarkable recovery. Whereas the medical consensus was that in the best prognosis I would spend the rest of my life in a persistent vegetative state in a nursing home, I eventually walked out of the hospital on my own steam. Thanks to some very good doctors and many, many very good prayers I am living testament to the goodness of life and the power of God.
