Priel is finally starting to feel better. Monday she was able to do the usual p-day things, including going shopping with the elders, at which point she and Sister T convinced them to buy the ugliest ties possible at Goodwill and (she hopes) wear them to the zone conference. LOL.
Tuesday she was really sick again, though, in a lot of pain.
Wednesday she was better again and went to lunch and out to contact referrals. Thursday she saw a doctor to check up on everything and then did some lessons, including Book of Mormon class. She got a blessing from the elders that night, about which she says: “I asked the Elders to give me a blessing because I’ve just had one trial after another the past couple of months. In the blessing, Elder Thompson said that I would be able to find the positive in any situation and that I would be able to focus on that rather than the negative. It was exactly what I needed to hear, and I am so grateful for the Elders for giving me a blessing.”
Friday they had a zone meeting and then went to Red Robin, which took three hours to seat them, but Priel didn’t mind, apparently. Sister T called her family to set up a time to actually talk on Mother’s Day, and then they had dinner at a recent convert’s house — which made Priel sick again so she was throwing up all night. Darn fried chicken.
Saturday they had a luau as a farewell party for Sister T, who’ll be going home soon. She also had her call home since Mother’s Day had already hit in Samoa. It was a successful party, though Priel was creeped out about the pig, haha. Lots of people came, though, including non-members. Sunday, Priel got her own call, which made her happy. Before she’s cried about it, but this time, she says: “I’ll be seeing everyone in a couple of months, so that’s basically tomorrow.”
