Country Music Star Asks Prayers for Sick Wife, Says He's 'Still Believing that God is Faithful'


Country music artist Coffey Anderson has been asking people to pray for his wife, who has just undergone painful medical procedures to remove a mass in her colon.

The couple reports Thursday morning that Criscilla made it safely through surgery, and they're thanking supporters for their prayers.

It's been a painful and scary few days for the couple.

"We are waiting on results from some tests, she has been through more needle poking, blood taking, and worse things than I've ever heard of someone having," Anderson explained a few days ago in an Instagram post.

Coffey Anderson is a YouTube personality and competed on Nashville Star. His wife Criscilla is an entrepreneur and dancer.

Doctors do not believe the mass is cancerous, but they worked to surgically remove it Wednesday evening.

Through it all, Anderson is putting his hope in God.
