In their recent mission in Ghana, members of the 2009 medical team were blessed by a man who calculates himself to be 120 years old.
The surgeons with Operation Hernia, who were once again a part of the medical team, had completed a successful hernia repair on this gentleman. The elderly man was very emotional when he addressed the team, explaining how he wished he could give them something to express his gratitude for the team for coming to help him. The hernia had caused him great suffering and now he was pain free and felt like a young man again!
He went on to say that the only thanks he had to offer was to ask that the Most High, Almighty God would bless the team members and their children with every possible blessing, and that he considered them all to be adopted members of his family from that day forward.
