Pray for Elisha

Elisha BlairMany of you know that Elisha Blair, youngest son of missionaries Brian and Laurie Blair, had major surgery to repair an aneurysm in his aorta last month.  That surgery was successful, but the graft of the repair section to the pulmonary artery is leaking and requires very difficult surgery, and the doctors do not give a high probability of success. This link goes to his website if you would like more details.

Surgery is scheduled for today in Seattle. Please be in prayer for him, and for his family–Laurie is with him, while Brian is with the other four children in their home in Nenana, Alaska, where they serve Voice for Christ radio ministries to the interior of Alaska.

UPDATE:  as of 9:40 p.m., Elisha is out of surgery, the surgeon believes that he made the repair needed to the coronary artery’s graft to the dacron replacement section, and the family is cautiously optimistic, and thankful to God for this result and for all the prayers.
