Greetings all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
My surgery has been successful and I am now in the early stages of rehab. As all of you know this is very painful! I am doing physical therapy three times a week at home through the end of the week. After that I will continue physical therapy at an outpatient facility near my home for an additional 4 weeks. By that time my knee should be fully functional and my mobility restored. I hope to be back with you for the Annual Meeting on the 26th!
I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support through this difficult time. I have received numerous cards and phone calls encouraging a quick recovery and prayers for my healing. These are so appreciated by Teresa and I.
We will welcome The Rev. Doug Coil this Sunday, January 12, as our Supply Priest. Rev. Coil will officiate the morning worship service in Fr. Alan’s absence.
