Three Doctors, three Cities, three Countries and three surgeries

Our greatest challanege as missionaries was not having the health that we need to do our work to the best of our ability.  It started in Dar es Salaam,
Elder Wilson had kidney stones.  The first stop
was at the Aga Khan Hospital and the first
doctor and he felt that all would be well with a
small operation, well, it didn't work.  The second stop was at another hospital and another doctor in Johannesburg, South Africa with a second doctor who was sure it could all be taken care of with a second surgery, well, it didn't work.  

 Elder Wilson's mother always said that things happen in three's so we were headed home to the third hospital in the third city with a third doctor.  We were there a little longer than we planned but, had a third surgery and all is well that ends well and the problem was taken care of .  We are so grateful for prayers that were offered in our behalf from Orem, Utah to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.  There were very much appreicated.  So we went from the summer of Dar es Salaam to the winter of  Utah.  Received warm hugs from children and grandchildren, attended the temple and had experiences that strengthened our faith and now we are back in Tanzania to finish our misson.  We are enjoying our time here and loving the work, the people and the gospel.
