Paul Washer and his wife, Charo, posted an update regarding Paul’s heart bypass surgery that took place a few days before Thanksgiving on Nov. 20.

Paul Washer Faces Long Recovery

Washer is the founder of HeartCry Missionary Society, an organization that began in 1988 in Peru to help indigenous missionaries reach their people group for Jesus and build churches.

According to its website, today the group focuses on providing “financial support, theological training, Scripture and literature distribution, and the supply of any tool necessary to facilitate the completion of the Great Commission” to indigenous missionaries throughout the world.

“The procedure was successful but the road to recovery will be slow and steady,” the Washers posted. “We continue to covet your prayers for a full recovery in the months ahead. We are humbled and grateful for the tremendous prayer support received. The messages of love and encouragement for brother Paul and our family from all over the world have been a tangible blessing and a testimony of the love of Christ.”

The update concluded with them thanking God for his provision, “We are grateful to our God for opening all the necessary human doors that have led to this day and the love and vital prayer support of our brothers and sisters.”

Washer’s surgery has forced him to cancel upcoming speaking engagements, one of which was the 2024 National Founders Conference scheduled to take place on Jan. 18-20 in Southwest Florida. The event features Costi Hinn, Tom Ascol, Conrad Mbewe, Phil Johnson, Travis Allen, and Allie Beth Stuckey.

“In God’s providence, brother @paulwasher will no longer be able to join us for our 2024 National Conference,” Founders Ministries posted on social media. “We thank the Lord for his kind provision and care for our brother in his successful surgery and pray for his continued recovery! Stay tuned for an announcement of a new speaker joining us at the #NFC4.”
