I received a call from Helen part way through surgery. The doctor had come out to let them know that all was going well. Max has been in surgery for over 2 hours now and he is past the most difficult steps. He is successfully on the heart/lung machine and everything seems to be going as planned. He will still be in surgery for at least a couple more hours. He will continue to be sedated for at least 4 hours after surgery but Helen said it looks good that she will be able to see and speak to Max hopefully by early this evening. Praise the Lord that it is going smoothly and please continue to keep Max and Helen in your thoughts and prayers throughout the day and the coming weeks.
We hope we'll have many contributors from our congregation. I imagine we will have regular and occasional contributors. If you'd like to contribute a poem, a photo, a devotion or anything that you believe enhances our life together, please contact Pastor Criss to learn about posting.
