Update (8/31): The surgery went well aside from some bleeding that has lasted longer than expected. The recovery time will be longer than I had originally thought due to the bleeding complications. I appreciate all of your prayers. Thank you.
Original (8/8): I typically do not write to ask for prayer requests for myself, but lately I feel that not doing so would be an act of pride. And today I am asking for your prayers. In short, I have a surgery on my jaw on August 30th to fix a painful jaw condition that has troubled me for several years. I simply can not delay the surgery any longer. I will have to travel nearly 500 miles to have surgery up in Minnesota and the cost for the procedure will come in over $6,000. Last week I returned from a pre-surgery consultation with the surgeon.
I ask for your prayers at this time and, if possible, your donations to help defray the costs associated with the procedure. Any donations submitted through the sidebar this month and likely for several months afterwards will go to cover these costs. Since I have been out of full time work since November, your support (financial and spiritual) is quite important to me at this time. Thank you and God bless
