Wounded worker arrives at hospital in Germany

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)–Wounded Southern Baptist relief worker Carrie McDonnall arrived at the U.S. Army hospital in Landsthul, Germany, March 17. Conflicting reports placed her condition as critical and unconscious to being in stable condition as a result of extensive wounds.

McDonnall and her husband, David, and three other Baptist humanitarian workers were shot in Mosul, Iraq, in a drive-by terrorist attack March 15. The other four died from their wounds.

Paige Patterson, president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and his wife, Dorothy, in Germany at the time, visited McDonnall and prayed over the wounded worker. The McDonnalls had been enrolled at the Fort Worth, Texas, seminary prior to their deployment to Iraq last fall for Baptist humanitarian work under the auspices of the Southern Baptist International Mission Board.
