In Priel’s update this week, she was even MORE upbeat than last time! She managed to get help for her neck, which has been paining her a lot due to whiplash. The mission president sent her to physical therapy, which she’d never done before (she’s only done chiropractic stuff). It was very effective, and she’s quite grateful for the exercises and massages she’s getting done for her neck.
She’s also had a few “small world” moments. One of the families in the ward has a daughter who served her mission in Los Alamos. She was at BYU-Idaho when this girl was serving, so she hadn’t met her before, but it was a nice thing nonetheless. They talked for half an hour. There’s also a soccer coach in the ward who has competed with some of Priel’s cousins and knows her uncle.
Things in general are going well. She and Sister Rader are getting more appointments and the kids in the ward treat them like celebrities, shouting their names and drawing them pictures. So she’s in a good mood. =)
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you for her next update!
