Wednesday, April 21, 2010

In the office today Hna. Johnson spent most of the day inputting “Reimbolsos” (Reimbursements) for the missionaries. There were a ton, the most she’s ever had in a single day’s entries. I spent a lot of time on the computer making a map for Elder Fitch in San Juan/Mesopotamia. Every “Area Book” is supposed to contain a detailed map of the area. But the Mesopotamia Area has never had one. In fact there are none available at the map store. I created their map from the satellite view of San Juan in “Google Earth”. It is fun, I enjoy making maps.

Today we got word back from the states on two of our Elders that were sent home to recover from serious illnesses. Elder Danny LaMoure (See January 27, 2010) went home in February. He has made a complete recovery and will reenter the mission field. However he will not be back in the Dominican Republic. He has been reassigned to the serve in a Texas Spanish Speaking Mission. This is really good news. Elder LaMoure will be a great missionary.

The news about Elder Joshua Cummings of Farmington, UT. was not as good. (See January 25 and February 26, 2010) He is still very ill but at least the doctors have finally diagnosed his problem. While he was serving in Madre Vieja he picked up a parasite called a “Hook Worm”. This is a particularly bad critter! But now that they know what they are fighting against he will get the correct treatments so he can make a full recovery. Our Prayers are with him as he fights this parasite.

For the second week in a row the “Noche de Amistad” failed to materialize at the “Los Arroyos” Branch. But again I got to watch the youth in the parking lot make games for themselves with a half flat basketball. Hna. Johnson was inside with the Primary President and her two daughters, Jana (1) and Yana (3). They are really cute, real dolls.
