Is There a Doctor in the House?

Actually, the answer is yes! Meet Doctor y Hermana Hollingsworth...the South America South Area Medical Advisor and his wife...

They are with us this week to tour medical facilities in the mission and check on some missionaries. What an incredible couple. This is their second mission as medical advisors. Their first was to Mexico and now here. Dr. Hollingsworth is on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. And his wife is just as involved as he is! He works with missionaries in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay...mostly by phone and email. He has seen it all and heard even more. We have had a great time with them. Diane even came down with a cold just to let them know they are needed and loved!

So, here is my favorite part...they are just great, real people who love to serve others. Very kind, funny and gracious. This is what the healthy breakfast table looked like this morning at our home...a perfect training table for a doctor...juice, milk, fruit, banana bread and granola...

Now look again at this picture and notice that Hermana Hollingsworth has the granola, my bowl has Honey Nut Cheerios and Doctor Hollingsworth is digging into the Sugar Frosted Flakes (Zucaritas in Argentina)! How can you not love a doctor who has Sugar Frosted Flakes for breakfast? He's Grrrrrreat!!!

Yesterday they toured Resistencia, today Corrientes, tomorrow Formosa and Thursday Posadas. We are fortunate to have them here.


  1. Ha! That is my kind of doctor!

  2. I just found your blog and have enjoyed it so much. Our son, Trevor Bruce served in Argentina Resistencia Mission under Presidente Del Castillo and loved his mission. My husband Leland and I are currently serving in the Chile Antofagasta Mission as Mission President and have completed 18 months. I can so relate to your experiences in the mission. Thank you for letting me spy on your mission. By the way, I think your son Chris is friends with some good friends from our home ward, Andrew Lark. Best of luck with your mission service.
