Ian's Surgery

Hey Friends!
Ian is in surgery today. This was sent by his dad:

I just talked with the orthopedic surgeon (this was actually yesterday). He said his surgical plan is an aggressive one. The arm will be the simplest of the two, so he’ll start there and see how Ian is doing. If Ian is doing well in the surgery, he’ll proceed with the knee. The knee was extremely badly damaged, and his plan is to try to reconstruct it so something more could be done with it later. Medically, his best case scenario even after subsequent surgery was that the knee would bend again someday but that it would be a long way from 100% functional.This is an aggressive surgery that brings with it risks. Please pray he would come through it well, that the doctor would proceed with the knee reconstruction, and that the outcome would be better than expected. Pray that his knee would be whole again. Pray most of all that he would wake up.Thank you for your prayers….

The doctors are saying that his knee would be a long way from 100% functional. I'm excited to hear the doctors say this! Why? Because I believe that God wants to heal Ian in a way that will absolutely astound the doctors. God loves to do things that make His name famous and bring Him great glory. Healing Ian supernaturally would most certainly bring fame and glory to God. I can just imagine the doctors saying, "I don't understand why Ian is getting better so quickly! I haven't seen this before." So let us pray fervently that God would touch Ian in such a way that even the doctors are baffled. Let us pray that the doctors would see clearly that there is a God and He is very real. Thanks.

Dear Friends of Ian in the Body of Christ,

I was reading in Luke 10 this morning about Jesus sending out the 72 to go to all the towns he himself was about to go to. He told them to heal the sick and to say, "The kingdom of God has come near to you." When they returned to Jesus with joy, they said, "Lord, even the demons are subject to your name!" And Jesus said to them..."I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold I have given you authority to tread on serpents nad scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
Your brothers and sisters in PA are rejoicing with you that Ian's name is written in heaven. We are also praying that the Kingdom of God would come near and that Ian would be healed completely for God's glory and for the Gospel to spread like wildfire throughout the hospital and beyond. May many come to Christ through this and be eternally rejoicing with us all in heaven one day.
