Disciple's Kevin Young and his wife Julie welcomed their third child and first son, Ryker Eliot Young, this week on Monday.
Although Ryker was born at a healthy 8 pounds 15 ounces, the Young family faced serious medical complications with Julie, who lost half her blood supply following delivery. After emergency surgery, Julie was stabilized and admitted to the ICU for recovery. Listeners and friends around the world banded together to pray for the family throughout the whole process, sharing their support and prayers across social media.
Kevin Young shared a summary of the day's events on Disciple's facebook alongside photos of his son, saying "I am so thankful for the life of my precious wife and our baby boy and for everyone that has been praying for us around the world today. With tears of gratitude, I humbly say thank you to all of you. Glory to God for His awesome power."
The Young family would appreciate continued prayers through Julie's recovery.
