Please join with me in prayer for the father of our pastor at Wrigley, Pastor Sammy Allen. Here is a portion of an email message I received from him earlier:

“Thank you for all your prayers for my dad. We went home to North Carolina early Friday morning and got back to Dickson Sunday night. He was moved Friday night to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC. The doctor was to let him know today when surgery was planned and I was suppose to get a call so that I could be there, but I found out tonight that my dad had surgery today. The surgeon was able to remove the shunt clean out the area and place a new shunt in. No part of his lung was removed. I talked to my dad tonight and he sounded pretty good. I’m not sure at this time when he will be going home. Thank you for praying.
