Dave’s Story

Site created on December 23, 2019

**The "tributes" in the menu above do not go directly to Dave Arnold, they go to fund the caring bridge platform. The best way to support Dave Arnold financially is through GotoFundMe on the Ways to Help page or by contacting the family directly.  Thank you!**

Dave Arnold has spent his life in ministry. Inspiring, encouraging and challenging others to take risks and live life to the fullest for Jesus. He is blessed with a beautiful wife, 6 kids and 8 grand-kids. 

On the 20th of December, Dave was taken to the ER due to stroke-like symptoms. They did a CT scan on his brain and found multiple points of bleeding. From there they moved him to a neurology ICU where they did a full body scan and found spots on the liver and lungs as well.  The biopsy report shows that Dave has stage four melanoma.

We are blessed and encouraged by all of you who are fighting with us. 

We do not have a clear picture of the financial impact this will have but God has always been faithful. We are very grateful to all of you who have prayed and provided for our family over the last 40+ years.

Thank you for praying for Dave during this challenging time.
