Rev. Timothy Wright may be home for the holidays

posted by Joanne Brokaw

RevTimothyandBettyWright.jpgI got an update on Rev. Timothy Wright from family friend and spokesperson Laurie Schneider, who says that Rev Wright may be heading home for the holidays. That’s great news!
She told me by email, “He has sensitivity in both arms and hands. He is moving his neck and shoulders on a regular basis. He is in therapy [three] hours a day.”


Eurweb.com reports that in mid-October Rev. Wright made a public appearance at the Circle of Sisters Expo, sponsored by WLIB, his hometown New York radio station. He was able to speak, and to share his testimony and express his gratitude for the love and support he’s received since the July 4th accident that took the lives of his wife and grandson and left him with a C4 spinal injury.
Rev. Wright has been at the Kessler Institute since August, where he has been receiving intensive therapy and care. Since his insurance benefits were limited to VA coverage, the family has been paying out of pocket for treatment at the Kessler Institute, but felt that the facilities offered Rev. Wright the best opportunities for the most complete recovery possible. Looks like that great care, coupled with the countless prayers of friends, family, churches and gospel music fans, have been working.
Because I don’t live in NYC, I don’t have the ability to attend events where Rev. Wright appears. If you do, please give us an update!

The prayers of the righteous availeth much. God is such a great God. I know that He has smiled on you because you’re healed and itis because of the mercy that the Lord bestows upon His people day by day. My prayers are still with you and your family during the holiday season and beyond.
Remember that God doesn’t close one door without opening up another..

As your song said “Keep the fire burning dont ever let it go out hold on to your faith and run this race dont ever let it go out” that is what you do because you have been such an inspiration to so many. When thigs go wrong in my life the words in your songs and prayer always seem to turn things around for me. I pray that god speeds your recovery and you return back to crown heights my (old home) to continue saving souls and blessing lives. God Bless you both your families.

God Bless you Rev. Wright. I have enjoyed your Gospel Songs & Music for years and our choir have sung many of them. I share in your grief and pray that you will make a miraculous recovery soon to the Glory of God the Father. I am so sorry for the loss of your wife and grandson. May God continue to strengthen you on your journey to healing: spiritually, emotionally and financially. I leave you with these words from your song: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus! Yes He is a Healer, Savior and His name is Jesus. Nobody can say it better than you Pastor Wright! Be blessed. And in the words of the late great Bishop G. E. Patterson: In the name of Jesus you can be healed, delivered and set free!
