We continue to ask for prayers on behalf of Michael Burkhardt. After playing a wonderful hymn festival for the Region 3 conference in Chicago, later that evening he was admitted to the University of Chicago hospital. A clot had formed due to a cardiac procedure he had on July 19 causing a heart attack on the evening of July 27. The good news is he was hospitalized within minutes of the event, making prompt intervention possible. The doctors indicated the clot was going to happen no matter where he was and no matter what he was doing. It is truly a blessing he was with friends and close to excellent care when it happened. At home in Michigan now, his activities will be restricted as he begins cardiac rehab.  Thank you for your prayers and support. Cards may be sent to Michael at:
