A few weeks ago, we had our annual visit from a GS, this time Dr. Jerry Porter. In my experience, the GSs that I've gotten to know at all have all been humble, gentle men and women, not self-important or arrogant at all. For those of you who aren't Nazarenes, there are six GSs, each elected for a four-year term. They divide the world up, and take turns being responsible for each part, two years at a time.
Dr. Porter took a tour of the new hospital--he's the first GS to visit since we moved in. They did the tour on Thursday which is the day when I have my talipes (club-foot) clinic. Dr. Porter stopped, watched me casting a kiddo's foot and asked questions. When I saw him again at a meeting that evening, he commented that he had Googled talipes, and read up about it. He asked a few questions about my work.
Finally, I can't resist adding a photo of Dr. Porter holding Noah Riggins. He and Noah seemed to like each other--I think Dr. Porter was missing his own grandkids.
