Jeff Stewart is the Senior pastor of Calvary Chapel of Pomona. I have known Jeff about six years, and we are friends. He has been part of the group of pastors that have helped to serve and minister to the people and church leaders down in Vizcaino.
Jeff has had kidney failure going on for quite some time. In hoping to give Jeff a kidney, his wife Karen went through a series of tests to determine if she was a good match. Through that testing, doctors discovered that Karen has lung cancer. Karen has never been a smoker, and this is rare.
One of Jeff’s elders donated a kidney last week, and both Jeff and Matt are doing well.
Karen still has a battle in front of her.
A CBS affiliate has done a short video story on Jeff and Karen. There is also some talk that they may be invited to share their story on the Dr. Phil show.
Please keep Jeff and Karen and their children in your prayers.
Here’s a link to their video interview.
