Prayer Updates
– Rob Terrell’s surgery to remove the tumor in his pancreas lasted ten hours yesterday, but his mother reported that he won’t have to spend time in ICU. The doctor expected that Rob would stay in the hospital for about a week (Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles). Please keep Rob’s recovery in your prayers.
– The Thompsons are still awaiting test results. Please continue to pray for the best possible news on the pathology report.
