UPDATE: This was sent out by my Dad's assistant.
Hallelujah! Pastor Riffe's procedure is over and he is doing great! The problem artery was 99.5% blocked, can you believe that! The doctors performed an angioplasty and his artery is flowing well again, with only 10% blockage. Thank you all for your prayers, but don't stop - keep those prayers coming. The family has requested that Pastor receive NO VISITORS, either at the hospital or the house, for the next couple of days. Pastor has not slept well in days and he is really worn out and he needs to get some good rest. He will be kept in the hospital overnight for observation and will go home tomorrow. Pray that God will raise him up so that he will be able to be with us Sunday morning. God truly is good all the time!

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
My Dad is going in for surgery this morning. His cardiologist discovered he had more blockage than at first thought. He has already under gone two open heart surgeries. The procedure today may be a catheterization, or a stint may be put in. They will not know until they are in the OR.
Please uphold him in your prayers today and my mother as well.
