This is a letter to our friends –
You may recall our request for prayer in behalf of Dr. Steve Long.
Steve and his wife, Vicky, lead the campus ministry of international Christian students at Stamford University as well as a major ministry based in Taiwan.
Thank you for your prayers and for God’s grace. Since that first request, Steve has had a number of setbacks and recoveries – thus – I have hesitated sharing an update.
The following message just arrived from Vicky – –
Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you for your prayers. God is good. Steve is getting his staples out now: 81 staples in the right leg
now they are sterilizing the incision and putting strips on it to give extra holding power. The doctor says Steve can be released on Friday. We will live at the home of church people who are going to Europe on a government assignment. Their home is empty and ready for us. Thanks to God for all His angels who are making this trip more comfortable as we go through the fire!!!!!
Oh – now they are also taking the staples out of his chest incision. 24 staples.
Total of 105 staples – that is a big zipper.
Please continue to pray for us. Counting down till Friday release from the hospital.
Thank you again
Steve and Vicky Long
