Update on Al

January 4, 2007

A number of you have written in asking about Al, his surgery and his recovery. Thanks so much for your encouraging expressions of loving Christian concern. He’s a quick report from my friend Jason Allen, Al’s able assistant.

"Dr. Mohler continues to recuperate from abdominal surgery at Baptist East Hospital in Louisville, KY. Daily he is gaining strength and making progress, but he still has a good deal of recovery before him. Please continue to pray for his complete and expedient recovery and for the Lord to grant him abundant grace during this time of convalescence.

"Dr. Mohler has expressed deep appreciation for all the gestures of encouragement that have come from so many and looks forward to being back in action at Southern Seminary, and behind the microphone at the Albert Mohler program (www.albertmohler.com).

"Thanks again for your prayers and support.
