What's happening with Junior
In February, one of the little boys Sister Tiffany teaches on Sundays, fell out of a tree and broke the femur bone in his right leg. This has been a scary and a sad situation. We hadn't seen the boy at Church for a few weeks when we heard about his situation. We have blogged about it and started a Facebook page "Prayers for Junior". Junior is 8 years old and lives with his Aunt and Uncle on the island of Weno. He was baptized by Elder Allred at the same time his brother Gladfin was baptized. Both boys are all boy, in other words, very active. When Junior got hurt, Gladfins parents took him back to their home island of Pis and Junior has been in the hospital since. The first 5 weeks he had a bar through his leg for traction. The leg got infected because it was not getting cleaned well. When we spoke with the doctor, he told us that Junior was fine and that the bone was healing well. He said he was going to put a cast on it to secure it, then he could use some crutches to move around. We asked if he could get a wheelchair instead of crutches at first.
