UPDATE: We cannot express to you how thankful we are for all the support that you have shown us through this journey. Our hearts are breaking tonight as we had to say our goodbyes to this beautiful life. Today, June 4th @ 5:31pm, Galin has officially left his broken body and is in fellowship with his Creator. His powerful hands, gentle heart, and big smile touched so many of us. After almost a year battling this cancer, none of us can remember a word of complaint. Instead he just spoke of this moment as gain. His neighbor of 10 years, with tears in his eyes said “I want to be like that man!” Please keep Galin’s family in your prayers as funeral planning, home searching for his family after the tornado, and wedding preparations for his daughter are all under way. He is survived by his beautiful bride Charla, oldest son Matt and wife Jerusha, daughter Brittany, daughter Kayla, adopted daughter Lilly, and newly adopted son Jaxson.


.........ORIGINAL POST: Few things can get him down, and his strength he uses to help others. He’s taught me how to roof a house, treat my lady, and more recently how to keep a cheerful spirit in the middle of the storms of life. Last fall he was diagnosed with an aggressive Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, early this spring he adopted a young boy into his beautiful family, two weeks ago his daughter became engaged, and tonight his home was ravaged by a strong tornado. The direct hit left his home a total loss. Please consider the trauma these two storms have left in Galin Campbell’s family and donate some spare change to be a helping hand on his way to restoration. Thanks!!

..........Here is a text message sent by my Uncle Galin to the family last night:
”We just had a little prayer / thanksgiving meeting in this camper. We have decided from now on as long as we live, April 30th is going to be a sort of "Passover" for this little Campbell family, that we will celebrate in a significant way each year. We plan to celebrate and have our own little feast of thanksgiving for the way God "passed over" our house and spared each one of us from death or even injury! God truly is good!”

Eight years ago about right now a group of Hollywood producers (Extreme Makeover Home Edition) came to Galin and asked if he would be interested in building a house for one of the tornado victims in Joplin, and of course we all know what Galin‘s answer was!

It is very humbling to see an actual monument of Galin’s kindness and love to others. He has done and touched so many lives in his short 45 years.

Here’s an update on Galin Campbell. Wednesday, he started the infusion process of receiving his CAR T cell treatment. Everything was going as expected with only the most common side effects. Yesterday, Galin declined rapidly. He was transferred to ICU and put on a ventilator. They have done several scans and they show severe brain swelling. Right now he is in VERY CRITICAL condition and doctors are concerned he is or is very near brain dead. He is in need of a divine intervention from the One who loves him more than all of us combined! We all know that we serve a miracle working God who delights in giving good gifts to his children! If you feel so inclined, we would appreciate pray right now for Galin and Charla and their children! If Galin was verbal right now, he would say, “GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!”
