This week we found out why Ed couldn't email in person last week: he was with another missionary who was very ill in hospital. He didn't say much about it, but he was with him from last Saturday night until Wednesday when I believe he went home, he was so ill :(
Elder Pentreath did say this though: "I felt very weird not being a proper missionary and admittedly found it a bit difficult to go back to what is now normality, but whilst in the hospital the only thing I really properly missed out on was working out properly because I taught all the nurses about our church and 3 apparently came to church (in Monrovia city) this Sunday just gone, which is just too cool. =D"
In other news. he will be phoning home on Christmas day. Hooray! So more to follow next week.
