HeartCry Missionary Society Founder Paul Washer Remains In Hospital After Developing ‘Severe Skin Reaction’ to Heart Medication

Paul Washer (HeartCry Missionary Society)

After several days of encouraging reports on his recovery from emergency heart surgery last Monday, HeartCry Missionary Society founder Paul Washer has developed a “severe skin reaction” to medication, delaying his hospital release.

“Unfortunately Paul will not be released today, as hoped. He has developed a severe skin reaction to one of the meds, which is very painful. Please pray,” an update on his social media accounts said Tuesday.

The Christian Post reached out to Kevin Hite, operations director at HeartCry for further details on the development Wednesday morning but he was unavailable. Other HeartCry officials noted in an earlier interview that they were not authorized to speak publicly on Washer’s health.

The HeartCry founder’s life-threatening emergency was first highlighted by Jhonattan Madueño at about 11 p.m. EST last Monday night who explained that the beloved missionary suffered the heart attack around 10:30 EST. Hite later told CP that the heart attack happened earlier at Washer’s Virginia home. He would not confirm what the beloved missionary was doing at the time of the attack except to say that it was unexpected.

“No doctor expected, based on his health, for him to have a heart attack,” Hite said.
