Jady and Liz Griffin are the lead pastors of Antioch Austin. The last week has been one of the hardest of their lives. On Monday, February 26th, Liz had a stroke. She was rushed to the hospital where it was diagnosed as a revolving stroke. After further tests they found that the likely cause of the stroke was a blood clot formed because of a hole in her heart. When they ran these tests, they also found two brain aneurisms and a mass on her thyroid. 

The road ahead for Liz is a long one as she spends time in a rehab facility. But, their hope and joy has remained steadfast and they have faithfully put their trust in Jesus. They have fought for hope, extended that hope to others, and created an atmosphere of joy even in the midst of deep trial. This hope has stirred the hearts of others, including the staff at the hospital and even strangers who have heard their story!

It is in the depths of hardship that we are tested and this testing for the Griffin’s has revealed only pure gold! Their resolve to believe in the faithfulness of Jesus is a testimony of their love for Him.

We are all honored to be in this journey with them. And one way we can come around them is by giving towards their medical expenses. As you can imagine these hospital/rehab stays and extensive testing...as well as procedures to come, are very expensive! Liz will also need continued rehab as she regains her speech, and muscle movement in her right arm and leg. This means equipment for their house to help her mobility and also treatment with therapists. Liz will also have a procedure to fix the hole in her heart and to biopsy the mass on her thyroid.

We have the joy to get to help lift that financial load for them! And we believe it’s an amazing opportunity to love this family who has meant so much to each of us!
