Letter #75

Hey Family,

This week was pretty good! Going to the see the Doctor added a little stress. I am going to talk with the mission President today to see what we are going to do with all that is going on! ahhh. This week was just full of what I would consider "a bunch on unnecessary stuff that we needed to do"! However, next week I am so excited for! Do you remember the last time that I told y'all we went to the Temple as a Mission?? Well... we are doing it again this week! We are going on Thursday and the thing the Mission President has asked us to focusing on is this:

1.       What does the endowment teach us about Jesus Christ and the Atonement?

2.       What is our true identity?

I am excited to learn more about this stuff!

So the Christ-like story is: The Guillen Family.
I believe that I told y'all last week that the family has a son that is still living in El Salvador. He has "Cystic Fibrosis". The machine that he was using to help him broke, and we were trying to help get it fixed, or find somewhere that would be able fix it. Last week we had NO luck. But this week, we had success. A member on the board is actually a Senior Missionary serving here with his wife. He has been helping us out a- ton! He has been on the phone all week as well as speaking with the members on the board, owners of the corporation, and doctors too. Through it all we found a new machine to send down to the families son in El Salvador! It is a refurbished machine, that was only used a couple of hrs. We have been on the phone getting all the legal stuff figured out too. We had to help get a prescription for him in the United States, and in El Salvador. Luckily to get to him the machine in El Salvador there is actually no need for a prescription. It is only a legal term enforced in the United States for patients. He lives in a different country so the legal part is not enforced. But he needs a prescription for the medication that is taken while using the machine. So that is the part that we are working on.
This has been the "Biggest Christ- Like Attibute" of Christlike love I have seen here on the mission! They are calling day and night to get this kid a machine and the thing I am telling y'all is he is paying for most of it... These machines are not cheap at all! We have been in constant contact with him trying to get this all figured out! It has been a big burden but it will all be worth it in the end!

This week was Halloween, I wore the same costume as last year of course~ the number one choice was the Duck Dynasty Beard (picture at the bottom) It was a fun ward party! Every one loved the beard... well that is what they told me! It was a really fun! There was a bunch of candy there but I did not dare touch it because I know it would do a lot of damage to my stomach~ so I left those alone! ahaha

But other than that I can't think of anything else to tell y'all!
I hope y'all had a good week and a fun Halloween!
Oh and this week a member bought all our food! this week we filled up our cart with food! so SCORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahah and we bought a big fat turkey because it was on sale!
Love y'all!
