Update on Stephen

Stephen came out of surgery successfully last evening but is still in the hospital and will likely be there for the next couple of days. His doctor wants to make sure the infection has been taken care of and that Stephen gets some much-needed rest while his body recuperates. Thanks to those of you who left comments on the blog and thanks for your continuing prayers.

Prayer Request

Please be in prayer for Stephen and his family. Yesterday he was taken ill with a stomach infection and was hospitalized, and is still there. Please pray for his healing and for peace for his family.

Update: Doctors have done a series of tests and it turns out that it´s appendicitis. Stephen will be going into surgery in about half an hour. I just talked to him and he says he is in a lot of pain, but he´s confident that the surgery will go well. 

Update: It's 9pm here and Stephen is out of surgery. His appendix had ruptured some days ago and there was a lot of infection in the site. The doctors were able to clean everything out and remove what was left of the appendix. He will be on antibiotics for a while and is supposed to rest for several days. Thanks for your prayers so far and please keep praying for Stephen's complete recovery.
