Please pray for Regional Pastor Cliff Brubaker, who is scheduled for open heart surgery Oct. 23 to replace his aortic valve. He will be having surgery at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Plans are that he will be hospitalized for about one week after surgery, followed by a more extended recovery period at home. While Cliff is recovering from surgery, Regional Pastor Ralph Reinford will be covering Cliff’s work with pastoral search committees and other regional pastor tasks.

Update: Cliff’s surgery went well, and he is expected to be hospitalized for about a week, followed by a more extended recovery at home. He plans to resume his work for the Ohio Conference in January 2019. Thank you for your prayers!
