Pastor John Ranney Update

Dear friends in Christ, > > I spoke with Margo a little while ago. While Pastor John is still in very serious condition at University of MD Medical Center neurological ICU, there has been a slight improvement in terms of the amount of swelling in his brain. He has been intubated, but he has been able to communicate non-verbally with Margo and others. There may be other surgical interventions coming. > > Pastor John and his family deeply appreciate the prayers, the visits from pastoral colleagues, and the many expressions of support they have received. They are all much-needed sources of light in a dark time. Even in a best-case outcome, this will be a very long journey, and the love that so many of you have shown is providing great strength to all of them. Keep the prayers going, and as Margo said to me, "Don't feel like the prayers aren't working even if we're not getting the immediate answer we all want. The prayers ARE helping him and us." > > > > In Christ, > Pastor Evers, Reformation Lutheran Church
