Jake Is Home


I'm sure many of you already know that Jake is home.  It's been a whirlwind of events.  He has been dealing with an infection and cellulits in his arm for about a month.  The closest doctor that had the credentials necessary to treat him was a three hour bus ride away in Belize City.  He has been on several medications and it was still reoccurring.  Then his attending doctor had to take an unexpected trip out of the country.  So erring on the side of caution the church's Area Physician in Guatemala  decided it was best to send Jake home for treatment.  We got the call on Tuesday that he would be returning home the next day.  Jake was heartbroken to leave his mission but he arrived last night at 9:30 with his usual big smile and positive attitude.  He had an appointment with his regular doctor today and it went great.  Dr. Kropf wants him to finish the round of antibiotics that he is on.  Jake will have blood work done on November 23 and then see Dr. Kropf again on November 25.  If his CBC comes back with good numbers then Jake will be cleared to return to his mission in El Salvador and Belize.

Jake is feeling great and knows that his visit home is in the Lord's hands.  We all realize that Heavenly Father has a plan and purpose for this short visit home.  We feel extremely blessed to have him in our home, and to have him share his experiences and testimony with us.  It is going to be a special Thanksgiving!

Love, Angie & Jeff & Jake
