Greg Butka's surgery in Japan

Greg Butka is a man of many talents, many "homes", and many friends. He needs some support from his family and friends now.  As a former member of the Young Americans, Greg was on an anniversary tour in Japan a few weeks ago.  On the day he was to fly home, he was admitted to a hospital for an emergency appendectomy! Surgery is scary enough, but being in a foreign county away from those you love is even more frightening. Thank God Greg has friends in Japan who helped him through this week in the hospital! 

Now that he's on the mend, Greg's anxious to get home to Nebraska and his job at Midland University. Unfortunately,  the  hospital wants the entire bill paid BEFORE Greg can leave the hospital, leave Japan and fly home!  $15,000 is a huge amount to ask for in one lump sum.  So we (his sisters) are reaching out to his "family" far and wide - Nebraska, California, Michigan, anywhere in the world that Greg has touched with is talent, goofiness, and passive magic.  If you're able to help in anyway - with prayers, with money, with good thoughts, he'd really appreciate it.
