An Update from Max

A Letter from Max

Dear Friends,

I want to take a moment to share with you some personal medical news.  Recently I was diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm.  Because this is a serious condition, I wanted you to hear from me personally.

Though surgery is a possibility, none is planned at the moment.  The current strategy is to wait, watch, and pray that the aneurysm doesn’t increase any further in size. I am maintaining my normal routines and commitments; my ministry is undisturbed by this news.

Here’s the good news:  I feel fine. I am under the care of an outstanding medical team, and most of all, I am in the hands of a good God.

If there is other news to share, we will post updates at

For now, please know that I am fully trusting our heavenly Father.  I am grateful for your prayers for me and for my family.

God bless you,


Pray for Max

We know people around the world will be praying for Max and may want to reach out or send a note of encouragement.
