I have got to get a running count on our surgeries.
Our surgeon, Dr. Salazar has become a very dear friend.
We are so thankful for him.
The surgery went fantastic.
It was Elder Reyes from Guatemala. Here he is talking to his mother
but he stopped to smile for the photo...
I have trained them well.
Elder Valdivia's last two companions have had appendectomies
on his watch.
He must be running like crazy.
Nobody can keep up with Elder Valdivia.
He is a great missionary.
He has the best smile...
He has had to learn to take a deep breath waiting in the
hospital for his companions.
Patience is definitely learned on the mission one way or another.
