We arrived in Brentwood Thursday evening and stayed in the local Best Westen to earn more points. Vickie is still really sick with the flu. She has ran a high fever throughout the week. This has been hard on both of us. On the 11th we traveled to the office in a large business complex and met the staff. Elder Hunt is the Mission Secretary and Eldeer and Sister Rodack are assistants and take care of housing and miscellaneous things.
Elder Hunt is a retired school teacher from Oregon. He and sister Hunt have four children. We did not spend any real time with the Rodacks. They were quite busy with their duties. The President was out of the office and was interviewing some Elders up in Kentucky where the mission extends. This mission covers six stakes in starting with Nashville and they spreads out into Tennessee, Kentucky, and a small part of Illinois.
We are staying the the Belmony Suites hotel near the mission office until we see the President, we hope today. His wife is better but of course not fully recovered from her strokes and heart attack.
She is in rehab and doing quite well...they see this as a miracle.
We ho[e to see the President today and get moved into an apartment so we can begin out work. Last night we ate at a local Mc Callisters and met a lovely young lady who waited on us and she became out first referall. Her name is Laura Duff.
