Late for District Meeting.

We always get up early and get our walking and studying done so we can leave about 9:30 for district meeting. It takes us about 45minutes to get there if the traffic isn't backed up. Just as we were about to leave the phone rang. It was our church phone so we thought it would be the elders for some reason. It wasn't though. It was gentleman calling us to ask if The Missionaries could go to the hospital and give a blessing to the wife of a man who worked for him. We have never met them before but they wanted to have a blessing so that the doctors could find out what was wrong with her. Wally called Bro. C. and asked him if he could go. He said yes and so they got ready and left for the hospital. When they got to the hospital there was no person of that name listed and they didn't know her. Wally came home and called the boss and told him what had happened. "Hold on, I'll call you right back." As things turned out he did call back and Wally and Bro. C. were able to go back, meet the family and give a blessing. We were going to wait until the afternoon but decided it was best to just go ahead and find her and be there for her. There is such faith here in blessings given by members of the church who hold the priesthood. We have had several experiences with members both active and less active and non-member friends who rely on that special gift given to those who are worthy. They tell us of the comfort and peace they feel and they Heavenly Father hears our prayers.
