Medical Journey of Pastor Raymond, Director of MTM

For the past 5+ years I (Ps Raymond Burkholder) experienced pain in both my knees as I traveled globally for the cause of making disciples among many Nations for MTM. Then approximately 1-1/2 years back I finally went to see an orthopedic surgeon in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He thoroughly investigated both my knees (with many x-rays) and informed me that I have Osteo-arthritis (also sometimes called degenerate Bone disease) in both knees with little to no cartilage remaining. He informed me that I will need surgery sometime soon to replace both my knees and that the Orthopedic department at RAM hospital at Chiang Mai, Thailand is well equipped to perform this surgery.
