A Stone Cut Out of the Mountain…

Letter from March 21, 2016

Well family, it has once again been a week.  Here is the top news, have you ever heard of the A&E? It’s the UK equivalent to our emergency room. I went there on Saturday! Woo! Thursday and Friday I’d had a bit of discomfort in my lower abdomen, in the back and to the left. Then on Saturday, we had the Luton elders in our area for a workover and we took them to Nando’s for lunch. Right after we left, on our way through town center, the discomfort started feeling more like pain, so I told Elder Helisto and Elder Chatora that I needed to go spend some time horizontally at the flat. I thought it would be better if I lied down but alas, it just kept getting worse.  So I had those three give me a blessing and we drove to the closest A&E in a place called Hemel Hempstead. We got there, the doctor did his thing and good news, I’m not dying! Nor will I die anytime soon. (Knock on wood) I just have a kidney stone! So they gave me some painkillers and told me to have Sister Stevens arrange a scan somewhere so they can take a look around my kidneys. Hope they bring back souvenirs.

 Anyways, another funny story, just before bed last night, I took two of the codeine tablets they gave me so I wouldn’t wake up in the middle of the night, and man they did their job! I slept like a rock right through to the alarm, and was completely wiped out. No energy at all. I’m still quite low-key even right now! So I’m going to just not take any more of that stuff, or we’ll never get anything done. It’s a good thing today was a P-day! 😀  What else is there to talk about this week? Not too much actually.

We had a fairly good week considering! Just the normal stuff! We find that we are finding  more time to do finding!  People cancel and we get to… find.  Seriously though, I love staying busy, love this place and the people, teaching or serving however we can.

Love you all, Elder P.
