Thursday, December 30, 2010

Today the Ayudantes (AP’s Assistants) in the south came into the capital to pick up their “camioneta” (Toyota Hilux Pick-up). It was in the shop being repaired and painted. (See Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010) It looks great now. When they left to return to the south they took all of the mail and supplies for all of the Elders and Hna.’s in the South. They had a lot to load and haul.

Great news today! Hna. Yessica Reyes (San Miguel, El Salvador) has returned to finish her mission after having brain surgery five weeks ago. (See Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010)

Hna. Reyes had the surgery in Guatemala. (See Monday, Nov. 22, 2010) The doctors here thought she had a brain tumor but during her surgery they discovered she had a parasite (Trichinosis) in the 4th ventricle of her brain. This revelation was very good news according to Dr. Kilgore, the Area Medical Specialist. They treated the parasite with antibiotics and her recovery was much faster than had it been a tumor. We are so delighted to have her back in the mission. She is a great missionary and the Lord has truly blessed her over the past month and a half.

Today our “Blog2Print” book No. 2 arrived in the mail. This one looks great, just like the first one. It is 251 full color pages of my personal journal that I’ve uploaded to our mission blog. Book No. 2 covers six months, from Jan. 2010 to July 2010. Our first book covered the first 6 months of our mission, from July 2009 to Dec. 2009. (See Friday, Oct. 22, 2010) We plan to print the final 6 months of our mission in book No. 3 after we get home.

The Elders in the office, as well as anyone else that comes by, really like to read our blog2print book. This newest one never had a free moment; it spent every free minute this afternoon with one Elder then another. I am really happy they enjoy reading it and looking at all of the pictures. The Elders are really happy when they find a picture of themselves in it.
