Dear family and friends,
It is with deep love and concern that we come to you with news of the ailing health of one very dear to us all.
Pastor Clem Goetsch has unceasingly, selflessly served tens of thousands of people throughout the world for over 60 years as a Christ Follower, preacher, teacher, evangelist, author, counselor, husband, father, grandfather, fisherman and friend. He has actively pursued his passion to preach the Gospel even as recently as Easter of this year. His personal testimony has been heard by millions and can be heard again here:
If you or a loved one have been touched and blessed by Clem Goetsch, we want to give you this opportunity to return that blessing as you partner with him and his close family during this personal crisis.
God has blessed Clem with excellent health throughout his ministry, but now at 97 years old his body has become frail and he has been hospitalized with life threatening ailments.
Once discharged he will need continuous in home medical care as his wife of 70 years, Phyllis, does not have the strength to take care of him full time.
He has depended on the Lord throughout his ministry and has never had the resources to provide for health or medical insurance.
We are so thankful that he and Phyl have been well cared for by his son Peter in ways we could never repay, together with some support from his other sons.
Financial resources for a hero such as Clem are never considered a burden, but rather a blessing to share. It is with this in mind that we are reaching out to those who have expressed a desire to contribute as well as others who were not aware of the situation.
Expenses that have already occurred are: Emergency medical transport, ER hospitalization, surgery, medication and professional in home care after discharge.
Funds that exceed the goal will be used to further distribute his published testimony “From The Guttermost to the Upermost” and care for his wife.
