UPDATE - October 3 at 1pm

We had a visitor in our office today! Pastor Gary is home and is doing great. Thank you church for your prayers! Please continue to pray for the results of the lymph nodes - pray for no cancer!

Today he and our other pastors had a chance to fellowship with Pastor Makoto from Kawasaki Christ Church in Japan. Our Japan VBS teams served with Pastor Makoto the past two summers!



“Hi everyone, thank you so very much for your prayers and well wishes. I can't believe it hasn't been 24 hours since the surgeon successfully removed the lower left lobe of my lung, along with a number of lymph nodes. I was pretty out of it last night but I'm feeling better this morning. He made six incisions which are all sore. The doctor said I should be able to go home today. Isn't that amazing? I would appreciate your continued prayers for my recovery, and that the lymph nodes are not cancerous. I love you all so much, as well as the King of all of our hearts!”
