ON Thursday July 23, 2015, Elder Ratsimbazafy from Madagascar underwent a minor surgery. he had a hernia that needed repairing. We waited for a transfer until he was closer to the hospital and got it scheduled. He spend a night in the Flora Clinic following his surgery by Dr. Andre Baars. He had plenty of visitors after the surgery. The Assistants, his companions and also the senior couples all came bearing goodies and well wishes. He is on the way to a speedy recovery, I predict. He is one happy missionary and a delight to be with.
