Today I left Hendersonville early in the morning and traveled to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. On of our pastors, Rick Brogden was scheduled for a medical procedure in advance of a kidney transplant next week. I was able to spend a little while with Rick and his wife, Martha and they were both in good spirits, and we believe the procedure turned out well.
Next Tuesday, Rick will be undergoing a kidney transplant operation at Erlanger. He has been sick for quite some time and his sister who lives in North Carolina is donating one of her kidneys for Brother Rick. It goes without saying that this is a wonderful gift of life that Brother Rick is receiving from his sister.
I am asking in advance of this surgery that you will join me in prayer for the Brogden family…that the kidney will be accepted by Rick’s body and that there will be a speedy recovery for both.
We are a part of a big, wonderful family and I am thankful for you.
