Update from Greg Mundis Jr.
4.22.2020 “WELCOME HOME”

What an eventful day yesterday was. We found out mid morning that the plan for @gregmundis transfer was going to be accelerated, and he was going to be coming home to Springfield, Missouri. It was not long ago that we were so anxious to hear from the healthcare providers if my dad was making micro changes toward improvement. It seemed that each day was a gamble. Our family’s emotional state was a ping pong game with the randomness of good news and bad news. There is no question that my dad flipped a switch in his brain and is determined to succeed. So much so, that the plans changed from possibly transferring this weekend or next week, to YESTERDAY!!! Talk about Rallying?!

I know there are so many that are struggling with their family members being sick. I know the odds are not in our favor. I hope today I am able to encourage those families who are in the middle of this struggle, to just hold on! Don’t let go! Keep fighting! There can be light at the end of this tunnel.

Update from Angelia Pack Carpenter
It’s late. I should be asleep.
My mind keeps going over today’s events. Lord You have been So GREAT to us!!

•Five weeks ago today, Thomas entered CCU at Cox South.
•One week ago today he moved to Select Hospital.
•Today he is COVID FREE.

I called CCU at Cox today. The nurses told me to let them know about Thomas’ progress. They saw him at his worst, literally at deaths door. When I started telling the nurse about our report today, I could hear others in the background, is that Angelia Carpenter?! They were all cheering through the phone!
Then I found out that when Thomas was moved from the COVID wing to his new room, all the nurses at Select lined the halls clapping for him as he rolled by. They called it his
“grand entrance!”

Tonight Thomas & I talked about the past few weeks & how we believe God is working it all for His Glory. That is our hearts desire!
Thomas said, “Anything we can do to put a foot on the devils neck!”
Amen! I’m with ya babe!

In case you missed this yesterday: Super encouraging day. Greg was off sedation most of the day (not 100%, but greatly reduced). He is still not fully alert, but responding to commands. They put Sandie and Hollie on the phone and he reacted. They sat him in a special chair for 4 hours. They are giving him physical and respiratory therapy. He is not off the vent, but they are weaning him off for longer and longer periods. He was breathing 50 times a minute without the vent; today he was breathing 30 times a minute without it. The goal is 15. God is at work. Still a long way to go, but definitely trending the right way. Praise God! Let's pray him across the finish line with this thing. —JoAnn Butrin, AGWM International Ministries director

Please continue to intercede for Greg Mundis. “The reports from the doctors seem repetitive with small changes for the better or worse, but no real movement,” says Dr. Greg Mundis, Greg and Sandie Mundis’ son (pictured with his family wearing Rally Hope hats).

AGWM and its many committed supporters are a community of faith. Scripture, as Dr. Mundis insists, holds the key to continued faith in the midst of our questions. “Psalms are a great place to land. David was so transparent about his state of affairs. He writes about joy, sorrow, peace, distress, faith, fear, confidence and shame.”

I cried out to God for help;
I cried out to God to hear me.

When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
at night I stretched out untiring hands,
and I would not be comforted.

I remembered you, God, and I groaned;
I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.

You kept my eyes from closing;
I was too troubled to speak.

I thought about the former days,
the years of long ago;

I remembered my songs in the night.
My heart meditated and my spirit asked…

(Psalm 77:1-6, NIV)

As you continue to pray for Greg, please remember Thomas Carpenter, other AGWM missionaries and their families facing COVID-19, and church leaders and members in the worldwide Assemblies of God.

On behalf of a world in turmoil, may we pray with the expectation that the hope of the gospel will be a life-changing discovery for millions.
