Bro. & Sis. Simon – just a note to let you know that Elder Simon is a wonderful elder and we are very grateful to have him serving extremely well in the Coban Mission. When I interviewed him earlier this week we noticed he had a strong cough and so sent him to the doctor. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and so we admitted him to a clinic in the Peten where he is receiving antibiotics and nebulization (normal in these cases). He is doing fine and we expect recovery in about 2-3 days and will keep him there until his recovery is complete. He continues to be energetic and ready to do the work so we anticipate a quick and normal recovery.
He entered the clinic yesterday and had a restful night. His companion will be with him during his time in the clinic.
Please call or write with any questions but rest assured your son is doing very well. We will keep you posted on his progress.
Best regards, and thank you for sending your son to serve. He is great!
