Re: Meleti's Heart Surgery on the 7th of May 2021

Hi Maria,

I'm with you on that. I certainly hope and pray for all the best for Eric. Has anyone heard any news? I would imagine that the surgery is over. On the BP site someone said it was about a 12 hour ordeal, but no news yet on how it went.

In fact, Luke mentions no vegetation at all in his narrative. (Mr 11:8; Mt 21:8; Lu 19:36; Jn 12:12-13) In a footno...
