Can you imagine living your life as a missionary in a foreign country and all of a sudden experiencing kidney failure?  For Lancaster County native, Randy Umble this was all too real.  While serving as a teacher to missionary children in Ecuador, he was told he would need a kidney transplant.  Randy’s wife, Melanie, was tested and against high odds was determined to be a match.  Randy received his wife’s kidney in April and the Umbles plan to return to Ecuador as soon as the doctor gives Randy a clear bill of health.  When asked about his wife’s gift Randy said,”I felt so much love.  I was just overwhelmed by her gift.”
