On the afternoon of November 4, 2021, Edmund Matkins suffered a subdural hemorrhage following a suspected fall at home. He was found unresponsive and taken to a local hospital, where they determined he needed to be transported via Life Flight to the Texas Medical Center in Houston for appropriate, comprehensive care for his critical condition. He was in a medically induced coma for 5 days and has undergone two brain surgeries. He is currently in stable condition in the Neuro-ICU with an unknown road to recovery ahead. Due to the complexity of his condition, we do not fully know what the duration or timeline of his hospital stay will be, but we are also anticipating rehabilitation to follow for an indefinite amount of time. We believe and trust in God’s provision for the ability to endure this journey and know God has already paved the way to use Edmund’s testimony to bring God all the glory and further His Kingdom.

First and foremost, we would greatly appreciate and cherish your prayers - for the miraculous healing of Edmund’s body, peace and comfort for his loved ones, discernment and wisdom of the medical team, strength and endurance for the days to come, financial resources, God to be made known to others following this story, and anything else the Lord places on your heart. If it is your desire to make a financial contribution in order to help the family cover the many medical expenses accumulated throughout this unforeseen circumstance, we thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity and want you to know your gift will be a wonderful blessing!

Isaiah 40: 28-31: Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Psalm 23: 1-6: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Philippians 4:6-7: do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
