Please be in prayer for Darrin Patrick, Pastor of The Journey Church in St. Louis and VP of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network. He suffered a brown recluse spider bite last week that has gone awry and has resulted in a staph infection his doctors are worried the antibiotics are not being effective against.
Darrin's wife is also in the third trimester of her pregnancy, so she doesn't need the stress.
I know Darrin mentioned something about amputation on his Twitter feed last week, but at first I thought he might be joking. Now I don't know.
Pray for his healing. Darrin's a great shepherd and leader, and his contribution to the church and to the missional church planting movement is invaluable, but I bet his family really just wants their husband and daddy to be okay.
Darrin tweets today: "My leg is doing better. Not out of the woods, but things are trending better. keep praying"
