FullSizeRenderWe want to ask you to pray with us for Costel’s upcoming surgery. On Wednesday, Steffi and her soon-to-be-adopted son Costel will fly to Stuttgart, Germany, for the pre-operation appointment on Friday, April 15. They will then get to enjoy the weekend with their family, before the big leg extension surgery on Monday morning. The procedure is scheduled to take around 4-5 hours, and the recovery time in the hospital will be ten days. A metal brace will be placed on Costel’s leg, which will remain for the next six months while the leg is being extended.

Steffi and Costel are both nervous, but ready to get the process started! Please pray for peace and strength for each of them, pray for the surgeons and nurses who will be performing the surgery, pray for the IMG_8840recovery in the hospital to be smooth and that Costel will not be in pain, pray for protection and safety while traveling, please pray for the entire Vogel family as they go through this process together.

Thank you for praying; we know God has His hand on Costel and that everything will work together for His good. We will post next week about how the surgery went!
