I know how anxious everyone is to hear of any change with Elder Schenk. Unfortunately this day has come and gone without any update to his status. We were very excited and encouraged when we heard he was getting moved to Hostpital Israelita Albert Einstein. We have heard that they have state of the art equipment to monitor and assess his situation. Hopefully we will hear more news tomorrow. Remember, as soon as we hear anything we will be updating this. So please try and be patient!
On a much better note! Mom and Dad made both their flights to Atlanta from LA and on the flight to Rio. We spoke with them briefly as they were sitting on the plane. They had to hurry from one end of the airport to the other. They are tired of traveling already and have maybe had too much time to think and contemplate. Especially without any news of Britts condition today. We are praying with the thousands of others for their safe and speedy arrival, and for good news when they arrive.
Once again we want to thank EVERY one who has shown us the true meaning of friendship. We have had so many great phone calls, texts, and emails. I have shed many tears from a well that I thought had run dry long ago in front of this computer. There have been so many amazing messages of love, support, and stories. Especially dear to me are the ones from Brazil that have been with Elder Schenk recently and testify of the man I have known only through words on a paper the last 21 months. Your stories you have shared of his spiritual strength, kindness, generosity, love, friendship, and testimony of his savior Jesus Christ and his gospel have brought an overwhelming amount of joy to our hearts.
Thanks again for all the love. It is simply amazing that this blog has been online only 24 hours and had 6800 page views when I started this post. By the time I publish this I'm sure it will have gone over 7,000. In one day! I know our heavenly father hears each of our prayers individually. Imagine the power of such a united effort of thousands... Britt, you sure are loved! Now just get better!
