Prayers are requested for the grandson of the Rev. Steve Reinhard, who was born with complications on Dec. 26. Steve's grandson, Thoren, underwent a four-and-a-half-hour surgery on Dec. 27 for bladder exstrophy. More surgeries will take place after his first and fifth birthdays to reconstruct his reproductive system, and doctors are also evaluating Thoren's brain development issues. Steve serves Longs Peak United Methodist Church in Longmont, Colorado. Please keep Steve and his wife Tracy in your prayers, as well as parents Scott and Cindy Reinhard and Thoren's 2-year-old brother Emerson. Expressions of care can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
