One of the greatest men I know – Subandiryo (“SB”).  Former Mission President, Area Authority, now the Service Center Director.  He recently met a young dentist on dialysis, found that he was a match and today donated his kidney to this young man.  The man’s family is Muslim and kept asking ‘why would you do this for us’?  Subandriyo’s answer: ‘because it’s the right thing to do’.  Today the family was joking that they had a Christian kidney in a Muslin body!  And they were thrilled and SO appreciative!  SB is a true example of Christ-like service!
