Chattanooga Methodist Pastors United by Blood and Life-Saving Kidney Transplant

In heartwarming news, two Methodist pastors from the Chattanooga area have been connected not only by their faith but also by a life-saving kidney transplant. Rev. Ron Cook and Rev. Ron Littlejohn share more than just the same first name; they are cousins who have now strengthened their bond through this extraordinary medical journey.

Rev. Cook, the senior pastor at Jones Memorial United Methodist Church, was in desperate need of a kidney transplant after suffering from kidney disease for several years. Fortunately, his cousin Rev. Littlejohn, who serves as the pastor at Ooltewah United Methodist Church, turned out to be a perfect match as a living donor.

The transplant surgery was successfully conducted, with Rev. Cook now on the road to recovery. This remarkable story not only highlights the power of family and faith but also raises awareness about the importance of organ donation. It serves as a reminder of the incredible impact an individual can have on the life of a loved one by selflessly giving the gift of a second chance at life.
