Steps Away From Death?, Wife Supports

Robert Morris’s survival from a life-threatening bout of internal bleeding was nothing short of a miracle.

On 7 April 2018, Robert began experiencing pressure in his abdomen a week after undergoing a scheduled surgery to repair a double hernia. He was then immediately airlifted to the hospital, where doctors discovered his internal bleeding and performed emergency surgery.

Gateway Church staff reported to The Star-Telegram on 10 April 2018 that Pastor Robert Morris had to undergo several emergency surgeries to stem internal bleeding following a hernia operation on 2 April 2018.

Robert’s wife explained that as her husband waited for air transportation to the hospital, he asked her to send out an appeal for prayer on social media. And more than 250,000 people from 45 countries united together to pray for him, and those prayers were blessedly answered.

A day before Robert was released from the hospital, his wife thanked their children, their church family and hospital staff for supporting them in their time of need.
