From Bishop Beard

Thanks to everyone for the texts, emails, cards, notes and other acts of kindness. You are all an inspiration and a blessing during this time of challenge. We received the news from our follow up appointment at Mayo Clinic that neither of the initial surgeries were successful. The pressure in both eyes remains at unacceptable levels. My sight is continuing to decrease. I will be having eye surgery on July 28th for my left eye. The recovery time is 8-10 weeks. There will be an additional surgery on my right eye when the left eye has had an opportunity to recover. Thanks again for all of the prayers and support. The Lord has great plans and I can hardly wait to SEE what’s going to happen. God bless. Bishop Beard.
