|Chillin' with Elder Duke at the clinic|
Elder Duke had a doctors appointment on the South Side of the Mission on Tuesday to find out the results of his MRI. Ended up being that 12 of his vertebra were damaged, 3 prolapsed discs (Note: it's extremely painful) , and ruined lumbar spine. The doctors prescribed for him was 5 mg of morphine to stop the pain...Wow was he cranky.
Our Mission President was at our flat about four times this week speaking with Elder Duke about what was needing to be done. Felt like he was living with us for a good part of the week. But finally on Thursday, Elder Duke was off. We took him to the airport that night. Honestly it was the weirdest thing to be there especially as a missionary. For a few brief seconds I thought it was me coming home. I send the video I sent to my family. so you can see my reaction.
From then on I've been with the Zone Leaders going around their area..they cover the whole of Auckland City from the North Shore to Penrose. HUGE Area! We've been working a lot of their area this week. It's so pretty around here! Honestly I wish you could see what is here! Heavenly Father did no go lightly on Making a Beautiful World! He went all out on New Zealand!
