Thank you for the update. I had a good visit with Hermana Parkin yesterday and she said that your family is experiencing lots of little miracles. I know that with so many people praying for you even more miracles will happen.
Your prayers for Hermana Parkin are also being answered. As you know she was recently transferred. Hermana Parkin's new Zone Leader is in a very similar situation to hers. His mom was diagnosed with breast cancer several months ago while he was serving as a missionary. She is just finishing her treatments and is doing very well. One of her new Sister Training Leaders father had cancer. I know that they will both be a big support for her. Sometimes just having someone to talk to who understands is the biggest help. I know that Heavenly Father is aware of her challenges and put her in the zone with the very people who know what she is going through.
She is an excellent missionary and it's hard to believe she has been here such a short time. She has the maturity of a much more seasoned missionary. Hermana Wallis, her new companion, loves her and is so grateful to be serving with her.
We love her and will do all that we can to help her. My husband was able to give her a blessing yesterday and she felt comfort through that. Please keep us updated. You are in our prayers.
PS - I got to see pictures of your new grandson. He's adorable :)
