So I’m a mission nurse- What does that even mean, you ask! Let me tell you about a day in the life. We have regular studies in the mornings and its such a nice time of peace, quiet, and learning. And then we start our day around 11am. We get calls throughout the whole day and sometimes its hard to keep track of who is calling and where they are and what doctors need to be notified, but somehow it all works out. Usually the missionaries here have stomach problems, parasites, or joint pain. Luckily, there are super great doctors here in the Quito Hospital, so we are all well taken care of. We have about 3/5 appointments every day so we are in the hospital most of the day-evening and then at night we work in the offices to finish all of the paperwork and insurance duties. It’s a good life. I’m learning seriously so much about the medical field and its vocabulary. It can be a little stressful knowing that 400 missionaries’ lives are in our hands, but my companion reassured me that it’s not too bad when you have the Holy Ghost letting you know what’s best. I love that and I have complete trust in what he tells me.
Although we are caught up in the health of all the missionaries, we love to contact people wherever we are. Without having much time to teach Heavenly Father has blessed us with the most prepared people to listen to other missionaries. We had about 4 people this week tell us that they want to join themselves to a church or that they are looking for the truth. Theres nothing better than that. The work of Salvation must go on and I love being a part of it. May we all remember the grand role that we have in the salvation and happiness of those around us! Do good things and God will bless you.
