|right after he broke his arm|
Thank you all for your prayers as M was going through his surgery.
Everything went well. The surgery lasted for about an hour. They were able to use a method involving an x-ray machine that provides real time viewing allowing the doctor to make two incisions about 2mm long to insert the nails or pins. After about four weeks these pins will be removed. It is not expected that his growth plate will be affected by the break to any large extent if any at all. We are back home now and our next step will be to visit the doctor on Friday to make sure the bones are starting to fuse together.
Please continue to pray for him as he goes through the healing process and deals with not being able to run around like he wants to.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Rom 8:28
Our first visit to the hospital we were told that they would not be able to fix his arm and we would have to go to Buenos Aires for the surgery, but God provided an alternative. We met a doctor at church on Sunday night that that does not usually come. He advised us of this pediatric trauma surgeon in a private practice that would be able to assist us. His office is just two blocks away from our house and the surgery took place at another medical clinic just four blocks from our house. So instead of having to drive two hours or more, God provided a place that we could literally walk to. We do serve an awesome God.

Through the process, we were able to give testimony of why God has brought us here and the work that He has for us. We never know how God is going to work through these conversations that we have with people, but He knows and He directs our steps. We are thankful for the opportunity to witness to others and pray that God would continue to bring people into their lives to lead them to Him or that He would continue to use us.
