Nelson Recovering Following Kidney Transplant Surgery

CHICAGO, IL (February 17, 2011) – Jerome Nelson, superintendent of the Central Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church, is recovering from a five-hour kidney transplant operation today.

Doctors said the surgery went well, noting that the transplanted kidney began functioning immediately. Until a week ago, doctors were not certain whether or not he would qualify for the surgery, a family spokesperson explained. However, he was cleared for surgery and a donor became available.

Those interested in sending emails of encouragement and prayer may do so using the Central Conference office email address – all expressions will be forwarded to Nelson.
The family requests that everyone continue to be in prayer not only for Nelson, but for the donor as well.

Covenant News Service will publish more information as it becomes available.
