Today has been an emotional day, full of ups and downs. We feel like we witnessed another miracle. Pres. and Sister Moreira and Elder and Sister Call picked us up today from the airport and took us to the mission home. They expressed their profound love for Elder Schenk. Then we received the update on Britten's condition. Yesterday when Britt was transferred to the new hospital, the Neurosurgeon team took over. Britten was not doing well and things did not look good. After shedding many tears we went to the hospital to see our missionary. We said to each other, that we can accept the Lord,s will, but we will keep praying for miracles. It was so good to see and hold our son. We talked to him and told him of all the love, prayers and support. The doctor then came and talked with us. He said that his condition today was so much better than yesterday. He is still in very serious condition but gave us some hope. The next few days help us know more about his injurys. They have taken him off the sedation, but still has the ventilator. We are so thankful for the overwhelming love, support and prayers that we feel from so many. Britten has touched so many lives! We thank our Heavenly Father for his kind mercies.
