Thanksgiving Service

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to a thanksgiving service of a family whose son, Manuel Fernando, had hernia surgery at Clinica Ezell in Sept 2011.  The family invited the church leaders to celebrate the blessings of the health of their son.  After a worship service they fed the group a nice lunch of chicken stew and tortillas.  We had about 30 people in a small room praising and thanking the Lord.  Great day.

As we sat there and thought about it, it must have been quite traumatic for the family to have their son and father travel 4-5 hours from home to an unknown place, to be taken care of by some unknown people, to have their son put under a knife and to think in their mind there was a chance their son would not come home.  But he did, God is good!  Thank you also to the HTI surgery group volunteers whose work makes this possible.
