Elder and Sister Hall came all the way from Maryland
to serve. Since Sister Hall learned Spanish on her first
mission the Halls were assigned to work in a Spanish
speaking ward. They were also assigned to labor in an
English ward! In addition, they took on the duties of
Housing Co-ordinators. They kept the missionaries
safely sheltered, handling everything
from locating and signing leases for new apartments to
reconditioning vacuum cleaners and eradicating bed bugs!
They willingly took on many other duties and served
selflessly and with joy and love. We wish them well!
Sister Crippen served for five years as a mission nurse. That
means she was available by phone 24/7 to missionaries who
needed medical help. She located doctors, scheduled
appointments and surgeries and was at the bedside of
those who were hospitalized. She even occasionally
nursed a missionary in her home! But mostly she gave lots
and lots of advice to missionaries helping them to know how
they could care for themselves while they were ill or injured.
Many thanks to Sister Crippen for her kindness and care
to hundreds of elders and sisters.
