Thank you all, again, for your continued prayers and encouragement for Pastor Clark and his family. After returning home to recover on Saturday afternoon, Pastor Clark is feeling some pain and discomfort, but that is expected.

He is already feeling some relief now that the ruptured discs are repaired, praise God!! He is also able to eat and swallow. His spirits are high and he is happy to be in his home with his family to recover and rest adequately. Continued prayers, words of encouragement, and gift cards for meals are a huge blessing to their family. Let’s continue to show the world what it means to care for one another as we come together, as the body of Christ, to support our Pastor. We are grateful to witness this happening in our house. God is good, all the time!

Have a great week,
Pastor Sam and Journey Church Lead Team

Thank you all for your prayers, words of encouragement and support for Pastor Clark, Robin and the kids! They feel your love and appreciate the goodness that surrounds them.

Pastor Clark was able to go into surgery early this morning. The doctors gave a great progress report throughout the surgery and completed the surgery in about 2 hours.

He is now in recovery with Robin by his side and is tired, but in great spirits. We particularly want to celebrate that Pastor Clark is able to speak, which is a tremendous blessing with the surgery taking place near his vocal chords. Again, we are reminded that God can do anything!

It is awesome to see how the body of Christ unites during a crisis, we also know this is only possible through our Heavenly Father, Pastor Clark and the vision God has given him for the church.

We are blessed to see our church unite to pray on Pastor Clark’s behalf and care for their family. We see God’s work being done everyday through you.

If you would like to support the Mitchell’s, there are several ways to care for them.

  • Pray – Continue to pray for healing and rest in the coming days.
  • Meals – If you would like to send a gift card for meals, please mail them to PO Box 722764 Norman, OK 73070 or leave them with the receptionist at the Norman Campus
  • Words of Encouragement – please mail cards or notes to the address above, email pastorclark@journeychurch.tv or post them here on the site.

 

Blessings,
Pastor Sam Wampler

Thanks for taking the time to check on Pastor Clark’s health. Here are a few updates:

Pastor Clark had an MRI on Monday of the new spot on the brain and is waiting for more conclusive information. While there is a possibility of it being another tumor, it is very small and it is in a location that is impossible to get to. While it is possible that it was the cause of the paralyzation experienced a few weeks ago, there is not conclusive evidence that it is the single cause.

What is conclusive is that 2 of the discs in Pastor Clark’s spine are ruptured and putting tremendous pressure on his spinal chord. This could also be the cause of the episode of paralyzation. Due to the tremendous pressure on the spinal chord, the doctors have suggested surgery ASAP to repair the discs before there is any permanent damage. That surgery is scheduled for this Friday, June 21.

Many people have asked how they can help during this time. These are the best way’s to support Pastor Clark and his family:

  • Pray
  • Gift Cards – If you would like to send a gift card for meals, please mail them to PO Box 722764 Norman, OK 73070 or leave them with the receptionist at the Norman Campus.
  • Words of Encouragement – please mail cards or notes to the address above, email pastorclark@journeychurch.tv, or post here on Pastor Clark’s blog.

We will keep you posted, and at the latest, we will share an update after the surgery on Friday.

While all these things are beyond challenging, please know that there is nothing, at this point, that appears to be immediately life threatening. Pastor Clark is excited to have our pastors and his friends teaching on Heroes over the next few weeks, and as always, Pastor Clark is optimistic and ready to be back ASAP to continue to lead us into our destiny of seeing cities transformed one life at a time!

Blessings,
