Feb 17th, 2008We finally clicked on the "Submit Application" button for our mission. This whole process is a lot more complicated than we thought. It seems like everytime we saw a doctor there was something more to do. I.E. we had our physicals, then had to have a stress test. We told the doctor that all the paperwork was causing lots of stress, but he said something about a treadmill. We took that test and passed without any trouble, but then Vicki needed a bone density scan. It just seems to go on and on.Anyway, we're scheduled for our interview with the bishop on Wednesday evening.

So, mission preparation has concentrated mostly on getting medical stuff in place. And what a pain that was. Read on. I think I will create a web page for people planning on going on a mission when they are seniors just to keep track of all the medical stuff. Actually I suppose I am suppose to have all that stuff on the top of my head but I didn't and I had to go digging to get the dates for all surgeries (I have only had 3) what they were for etc. All broken bones (I have only had one) but it wasn't readily on the tip of my tongue as to exactly when. I should have been like Pres. Hinkley and not ever had been in a hospital until he was past 90. Unfortuanately that was not the case.
We had to have a tread mill test which we passed with flying colors. Dad had to have a cancer follow-up which he passed. I had to do all the womanly stuff and I as usual flunked my mamogram. Every time I go have to change who is looking at the images I have to go in for more. Yuck!!! but I did pass the second test. No problems. We are still waiting for all tests to get to our primary care doc but are scheduled to see the Bishop this Wednesday for our final interview.


We are making improvements on our website everyday. We hope you will come and visit often. We will be updating the gallary shortly so you can see picutures of the various Kids and Grandkids.

The process begins

The Auditing Department of the Church has contacted us and want us to submit our papers by Feb 15th, 2008. They have an opening in Bogota, Columbia and want us there.
