Knees and Pumpkins

This is last Monday's update for Oct. 13-19th.
Photos of Elder Edgell and Tanner's visit to pumpkin patch. Look at the beautiful countryside. That is real country down yonder in Kentucky.

He had a great week - lots of service - at least 30 hours inspite of cold and rainy days. I've asked him what types of service (other than bailing hay and herding cows) he is doing so hope this week he'll share.
They continue to teach several folks and found 8 new people the past week.
He and his companion had exchanges with their Zone Leaders last week and had a couple good days with them.
Wednesday was Zone Conference. Says Elder Edgell " It was an adventure trying to get down to Bowling Green. Wet and rainy plus trying to stop real fast doesn't go well together". Once there it was a good conference.
On Friday his knee locked up at a teaching appointment and when he tried to unlock it, he and others there heard a pop! UhOh! Before Friday was over his knee looked like a baloon. He was on bed rest through the weekend and by Monday the swelling was down and it was doing much better. Whew! So thankful for answered prayers.
I have spoken to Sis. Hutchings (mission president's wife) a couple times this past week and as of last night Elder Edgell's knee was doing great. He is definitely having grand adventures of all kinds and this knee thing is just one of many challenges he is learning to deal with. He'll be a pro by the time he returns home in 2011.
His 6 months mark is coming up. My how time passes quickly.
Well, it's been an exciting week, Elder Edgell is the proud uncle of a nephew. His oldest sister, Dana, and her family welcomed little Hale Douglas Allison, Jr. to the family on October 20th. He was able to find out pretty quick because Sis. Hutchings called the morning after Hale was born.
We should have a new update later today.
