The following is a letter from Pastor Rhodes wife about his condition:

Good Afternoon,

Thank you all for your prayers!!!!! GOD IS SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!
Brian is out of surgery after less than 2 hours of surgery. He repaired the esophagus
from his surgery when he was 12 years old. The doctor seems to think it will be a long term fix.
He will not be in ICU and should be coming home on Sunday or Monday.

I am overfilled with JOY !!!! Thank you for all your prayers, love, & support.

He will be in recovery for 1-2 hours when we have a room number we will let you know.

Thanks again!
