Last week was stake conference and I had been meaning to write down a couple of stories I heard.
First was from the temple President now serving in San Antonio. I guess he’s had kidney problems most of his life and 30 years ago he had a transplant from his father. However, I guess it cuts the life of the kidney by about 25% if it is transplanted. So his transplanted kidney failed. His father is 81, but his kidney was worn out and it needed to be replaced. They had been looking for a donor among the family, but none were a match. President lee was thinking maybe this was his time. But he said the tender mercies of the Lord were shining upon him. There was a Lady in the stake that wanted to donate a kidney to her husband but she wasn’t a match. However she was a match for president Lee and President Lee’s son was a match for her husband. And so the transplants were made and were successful.
Coincidence, the president thinks not.
I love to hear stories where everything works out for the best. Someday I hope to be able to tell that stories like that for me. I already have a couple. But not one like that yet.
