There are a lot of things that have stood in the way of our work in Nepal. Now we can add emergency surgery.
Already out of town and hours away from flying to Nepal, suddenly I found myself postponing flights and booking return passage home as my beautiful wife alerted me to the fact that not only was she at the hospital but preparing for emergency surgery to remove her gallbladder.
Just the day before, I had been having a wonderful visit with our daughter, Mary Hannah, in Boise, ID, celebrating her 18th birthday. Not long after, instead of boarding planes to Vancouver to begin my flights to Nepal, I was heading to Denver, praying that my wife’s surgery would be a success and that news of that success would be awaiting me when I landed.
