Pilgrim Milt McGinnis had a major operation Tuesday. The surgeon has advised the family at the hospital that the operation was a major success – all went as was planned earlier. Brother Milt spent over 9 hours in surgery and recovery today and was transferred to ICU for special care. He may be there until Thursday, when he should be in his own room for a number of days. The family wants to extend their Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes to date for Brother Milt. They ask that we all keep saying prayers for his good health and a speedy recovery now. He has a long road to go for a full recovery – we all look forward to seeing him at future meetings.

Pilgrim Bob Bakman was admitted to a Heart Hospital in Bakersfield and underwent a 5-way heart bypass on April 25th. He was discharged from the hospital on Monday, May 1st and now is on homecare in Tehachapi. He will be at home resting and in recovery for about 12 weeks. He asked that there be no phone calls for now – e-mails would be great, but do not expect any replies in return for now.
