Pastor Peter Smith, of Hope Valley Community Church in Red Hill, Pennsylvania, recently had back surgery. Word has come, via Northern Atlantic Fellowship coordinator Kork Moyer, that further surgery is necessary, to be done today. Here is part of the message Kork has forwarded from Peter’s wife, Julie:
“Hi everyone. wanted you all to know that Peter will be going in for another surgery this afternoon. I just got off the phone with the surgeon.
Peter isn’t getting better from the spinal leak and now has developed a fever. I am not sure what time the surgery will be but God knows and so you can pray for him this afternoon. He will keep him until Monday morning probably.
Then he will probably have to do antibiotics for six weeks. I am sure this sounds crazy but we are both glad that this is getting done … it has been a long week of pain for Peter and yesterday when the surgeon said we should wait a little longer and probably have surgery some time next week, I didn’t see how we could wait that long.
So, thanks for your prayers and we will keep you posted. My parents are in the area so they will be helping us with the kids, etc. Thanks everyone for your concern this week.”
