A Prayer Request

I know I have mentioned before on the blog, my brother and his family who are missionaries in Papua New Guinea. Well Chad, Janeene and their boys have made an unplanned trip back to the U.S. for medical reasons. The doctors here have found a tumor in Chad's bladder, and they successfully removed the entire tumor today. The surgery went well, but we will not know any of the pathology for about a week. We would so appreciate your prayers that it would not be malignant! I will let you know how things go... Once again, thank you for your faithfulness in standing with our family in good times and in bad!

Oh Sarah....thinking of you and your family as I am sure that you will be worried until the results come in. Hopefully, they were able to get everything and he will be able to resume life as he knew it before. Fingers Crossed!!
