Dec 2-14: Thursday am we focus on getting our inoculations – three different locations for four inoculations.  At 8:15 am. – the nurse looks at our records and asks if we want to get get flu shots &  tetanus shot. Then she volunteers to also give us a shot for pneumonia because of our senior ages. Then she suggests we go next door to the Shoppers Drug Mart to our Twinrix (1 of 3 hepatitis shots). Within 1 hour we received all four of the needed shots. Heavenly Father continues to “pave the way” for our mission, though we now have sore arms!
