Wednesday, March 17, 2010
March 22, 2010 - Rev. Colbert Croft remains in ICU, and remains in a critical day-to-day situation. The Doctors have inserted a tracheostomy tube, due to the continued inability to get air into Colbert's lungs. There is also a daily fight with multiple infections.
Although visitation with Colbert is extremely limited, many gospel musicians and artists, traveling in the Jacksonville, Fla., area have been kind to stop by the hospital and visit with Joyce, a continued testimony to the Crofts many years of ministry and service to others.
Jacksonville, FL - Songwriter, Pastor, and Evangelist Colbert Croft suffered another stroke late last week. On Tuesday, Colbert was returned to ICU with further complications from the stroke, and was listed in critical condition.
Efforts to move Bro. Croft from Shands Hospital, in Jacksonville, Fla., back to a south Georgia facility are still pending. The personal ministry of Colbert and Joyce Croft, and their now four decades of songwriting have touched many Southern Gospel artists and fans. This dynamic Ministry Team are perhaps best known for their song, "I Can't Even Walk (Without Your Holding My Hand)".
Your continued prayers are requested.
