After more than 250,000 people in 45 countries came together in prayer for his healing more than a week ago, Robert Morris, founding pastor of the nearly 40,000-member Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, is now out of the hospital.
“We are out of the hospital!@psrobertmorris fell asleep sitting up while I was getting us settled. A week ago, I wasn’t sure if I would have this luxury. So to say I am grateful, well….that is an understatement. God is so good!” Morris’ wife, Debbie, shared in an Instagram post late Sunday night.
She said that while the pastor is now “out of great danger,” he still has months to go for a full recovery.
Gateway Church spokesman Lawrence Swicegood told the Star-Telegram last Tuesday that Pastor Morris had to undergo several emergency surgeries to stem internal bleeding following a hernia operation on April 2. He was most recently treated for pneumonia.
Gateway Church staff reported that Morris, 56, began experiencing pressure in his abdomen a week after undergoing a scheduled surgery to repair a double hernia. He was subsequently airlifted to the hospital where doctors discovered internal bleeding and performed emergency surgery.
