A Tender Mercy from the Lord

Just a quick note about a recent miracle in the midst of tragedy.  Last Saturday when we were in Dar Es Salaam, we got a phone call from a very distraught father saying that his son had just been killed in a car accident in Utah.  This father's other son is a new missionary here in our mission.  He just arrived about 3 weeks ago.  So we needed to contact this missionary.  He was serving in the Chyulu area which is a 4-5 hour drive from Nairobi.  The father had been unable to get hold of President Msane and at first we were unable to get hold of him too.  But miracle of miracles, President Msane happened to be right in Chyulu with plans to interview all the missionaries, including this missionary, Elder F.  We weren't aware that President Msane was going to Chyulu -- of all the places he could have gone in the two countries of Kenya and Tanzania -- last weekend.  But the Lord knew.  President Msane was right where he needed to be and within an hour was comforting this wonderful young missionary, Elder Fraga, and helping him to make contact with his family.  What a tender mercy from the Lord.
