Wk 87 July 5, 2011
Hey, Sorry I am late a day. I will explain... July 5, 2011 #87
Last week we had a leadership training in Iloilo, which was awesome. Got to see Elder Misbach, the new Assistant to the President. He is loving it. It was a good adventure.
I got to work in my old area again Molo, and visit a family that we found that the parents were long time less active members and the kids weren't members. They are really strong in the church now and working on their young women medallion, passing the sacrament, and E.R. (their 20year old kid) worked with us after we taught the family the new member lessons on temples!. It was awesome. The missionaries are working on the dad. He hasn't quite come around, but he will, he is an awesome guy. So that was an awesome experience. I got to see some of my other converts. Michael, the one that we help get married. He is now baptized and has the Priesthood. Way cool guy. It was always hard for him to take out his earring, but when we went it was gone for good. He had to quit a pretty nice job to be able to go church every Sunday. So it was way sad leaving again.
After the conference we headed back to Kalibo. When I got to our apartment I started getting really hot so I went to bed. When I woke up yesss I had a nice fever. For the next 3 days. On Sunday I took a bath/bucket shower to try help me feel better. That is when my fever went up to 104 and I started shivering like crazy and then throwing up. So I told Elder Solis to give me a blessing and let’s go to the hospital (which is far away) We took a tricycle. That was miserable. Not like a three wheeled bike tricycle, but a motorcycle with a side car. It took about 30 min to get to the hospital. They took a few tests and sent me home with some medicine. Monday I still couldn't get out of bed so I wasn't able to email, sorry, and now today. I am doing better but still really weak. I am finally eating again. We should be able to get out to work by the end of this week. I guess I had a lot of acid in my body that was the reason I was throwing up. I have to take it easy on the soft drinks they said. I am just glad it is all over. It was probably the worst I have been sick. My flu is gone and I’m not throwing up anymore - just a little dizzy and weak. So that is my excuse for not emailing sooner.
I am not going to be any longer. Sorry the email is little watered down, I am still kind of out of it. I just wanted to give you an update.
Love you all and talk to you next week.
Tell Petr happy birthday! Get um out Keirston! :). Thanks for all your emails. I will try to respond next week.
