Pastor John Haak of Mountain Bible Church in Los Gatos, California, reports the following —
The saddest outcome for us … but Todd is free.
Here is how Marion Jacobs, his YWAM base Director describes it:
“I saw Todd yesterday, it was very rough for me. He is now out of ICU and on the regular ward. He seemed so frail and ill looking. I just wanted to take him home and care for him. His hair needed cutting but they were afraid to move his neck because of the injury. My heart ached when I looked at him. I purchased some pajamas last evening so that he at least wouldn’t look so ill lying there, and had everything prepared to take with me when I visit with him today.
This morning while I was in the morning meeting, I got an urgent text from his Jamaican pastor. She said the hospital had been desparately trying to get in touch with me, so they got her instead. Todd, our dear precious brother went home to be with the Lord this morning at approximately 6:18 AM. I have no words to describe the emotions that I am going through right now and I am sure it is the same for you. I spoke to his American pastor this morning as well. Please be in prayer for his church family both locally and abroad, his brother and other relatives and friends and his YWAM family. This is such a blow to us as we were putting things in place for his rehab in Kingston. I wanted to take him home, but the Lord took him home faster than I could.”
