Robert Morris celebrates second chance at life as he recalls surviving terrible internal bleeding shortly after hernia surgery.
The senior pastor of Gateway Church has celebrated another year of life, recalling the day he narrowly escaped death as a result of internal arterial bleeding experienced 6 days after a hernia surgery.
In a Twitter statement on Saturday, Morris disclosed that 8th April marked 5 years since he survived the incident. Ascribing his healing to God, Morris went on to express his gratitude. He appreciated God and all who contributed to his healing.
“Praise God for another year of life! Five years ago today, the Lord saved me from massive internal bleeding! Thanks be to God! I am forever grateful to everyone who prayed for me, the amazing first responders, and all the wonderful medical professionals. God is good” He wrote.
In April 2018, 6 days after undergoing hernia surgery, Pastor Robert Morris was rushed to the hospital in a helicopter as he was faced with a “life or death” situation. People had thought the medical emergency was related to the surgery he previously had. Conversely, Morris returned to the pulpit two months later to narrate otherwise.
Morris on the pulpit disclosed how he had passed out twice in a day. It was until the second time that the paramedic declared his case emergency and as such, needed him to be transported by helicopter immediately. Morris however recalled as directed by the responder, saying goodbye to his family in the event he didn’t survive.
Pastor Morris, fortunately, made it to the hospital to be confirmed as having two torn arteries that have leaked enough blood to kill a person. Pastor Morris concluded his healing was “supernatural.” Recalling the doctors eventually saying “There’s no medical reason why you’re still alive today”.
