Roy Aafedt Up-Date

Dear praying saints

Here's the latest update on Roy Aafedt (as of 6:00 p.m. CST). Roy's surgery actually just began probably within the last 1/2 hour (it was originally to begin around 3:30 p.m.). After arriving this morning they did an angiogram to determine the extent of his problem and to determine how to best operate. The good news is that they reported that most persons don't make it to where he was this morning/afternoon.

They considered different options with surgery, but have decided the safest way is to go directly through his skull. The doctors originally reported that he would be in surgery 4-5 hours. Roy's wife, Cindy, and daughter, Makenzie, are doing well at Fairview University Hospital in Minneapolis. Several family/friends are with them, including Dean Solum and Kevin and
Elaine Brown from our assembly. Roy's mother, Mary Dawn, and his sister, Tara and her husband, and others are with them.

They are aware of the prayer request going around the country/world and are very appreciative. "The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much" (James 5:16b). "The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and rescues them...O taste and see that the Lord is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!" (Psalm 34:7-8)

In Christ
