February 23, 2014
The rest of the week was working in the office trying to catch up on all of our work.
Sister Pettingill came into the office Tuesday with Elder Pettingill complaining of seeing spots in her eyes and having trouble with her vision. Elder Pettingill took her to the emergency room and goodness, she was having a stroke. They call it a mini stoke, but she is now trying to recover. We really do enjoy them and hope everything turns out good for them. We'd hate to see them have to go home early.
Miriam has been sick with the flu this week end. It is the first time she has been sick and I sure hate to see it. She is feeling better today than yesterday and we hope she feels good enough tomorrow to go to work.
We have a big week coming up with transfers. It is always our biggest week. We look so forward to going to the Temple on the Tuesdays of transfers with the returning missionaries. The thing that is the hardest is seeing missionaries that we have grown so close to moved to other areas or go home. I know we are all children of our Heavenly Father and even though we are separated now, we will have a joyful reunion when we see each other at zone conferences or when we all return home to that God who created us. We love them so!
This winter has been brutal. Even the locals say it is a bad one. Lots and lots of snow. Miriam and I wanted to experience something different on our mission and I think we got what we wanted.
We love the work. We have become closer to each other and certainly closer to our Lord and Savior. We pray together daily and study scriptures together everyday and it blesses our lives. We are able to talk with the kids often and they bring so much joy into our lives, even though they are thousands of miles away. Technology is a wonderful thing.
