Update: Nigerian minister receives chemo treatments in Arkansas
In August we reported on Emmanuel Abiodun Adegoroye, a longtime Nigerian minister who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood’s plasma cells. Christians in Nigeria collected more than $30,000 for Adegoroye to travel to the U.S. and receive treatment at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.
Treating the cancer requires a lot of money, as longtime friend Deborah Klein reports on Adegoroye’s CaringBridge page:
We have hope in regards to the financial situation because more funds have begun to arrive. We’ve yet a long way to go, but some wells are rusty and take much pumping. In the meantime, Ken (Deborah Klein’s husband) is negotiating/pleading/preaching to UAMS, to drug companies, and to other sources of assistance. He cannot succeed without God opening these doors; we do believe that God is working on our behalf here, and some doors have at least unlatched their bolts.
In addition to funds, the Kleins request cards letters, CDs (both music and spoken), teddy bears and anything else that might lift the spirits of the Nigerian minister during his stay in the U.S. (See the CaringBridge page for an address to send correspondence.)
The Lake Park Church of Christ in Georgia has agreed to oversee the collection and distribution of funds for Adegoroye. Funds may be sent to the church at P.O. Box 593, Lake Park, GA 31636. For more information, call (229) 559-0410 or e-mail [email protected].
