Brenda Brooks has surgery

Brenda Brooks had surgery Aug. 1 to remove a kidney with a tumor.

Mike and Brenda Brooks are old friends of mine. They were heading to Bangladesh last week. (They spend six months out of the year there and in Nepal.) Shortly before their trip, they discovered Brenda had a tumor in a kidney. She had the kidney removed Aug. 1 in Tuscumbia, Ala.

It appears she will not have to have further treatment. She should go home tomorrow.

Please join me in prayer that Brenda will recover fully very soon and be able to resume her normal activities.

I assume that she’ll not have any difficulty with one kidney. I’ve had only one for the last 33 years and have no problems.
