Friends in Christ,
We recently received word from Rev. Olivia Fabros that her son, Siegfried, is scheduled for surgery on May 21. With the time zone difference, the surgery will most likely begin on Thursday, May 20 CDT.
Her son’s heart condition has been described as a valvular disease including severe mitral regurgitation, prolapsed posterior mitral value.
You may remember that Pastor Olivia shared with us on May 8 that Siegfried was flown to the Southern Philippines Medical Center in Davao where the surgery will take place. This is the only medical center in the Philippines that is receiving patients for surgery. His surgery was first scheduled for May 19.
The Covid Pandemic continues to very severe in the Philippines, as well as other nations around the world. Covid, as we know, has, and continues to complicate every aspect of life including Siegfried’s upcoming surgery.
We invite you to continue to raise prayers for Siegfried, his family here in the Iowa Conference and in the Philippines.
Bishop Laurie Haller
Rev. Dr. Heecheon Jeon,
Riverview Park District Superintendent
