Harlan Schmieg’s surgery was unsuccessful. He is scheduled for surgery for a colostomy at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow (Dec. 24). 

Almighty Father, Along with Harlan we are saddened that the stent didn’t work, but we know You are a good, good Father and are still working all things together for good. Be his healer through the surgeon and all medical staff and be his comfort as only You can be. We place our brother in Your loving hands and watch to see how You will work. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
