Dan has conferred with his surgeon at Duke and plans are underway for surgery next Friday, January 23.  This will be a very delicate operation and could be lengthy with a rather lengthy recovery.  Dan asks for your prayers for a successful operation that removes all the cancer and that he retains satisfactory function of the pancreas.

Thank you all for your continued inquiries and prayers on Dan’s behalf.  I visited with him recently and to all outward appearances, he looks great and his energy is returning to pre-treatment levels.  He continues to trust God’s will and his faith is a constant example to me.
