Week 17 - "A visit to the ER is not complete without McDonalds."

Dear Family,
This past week has been great. Yesterday at Stake Conference we were able to get a less active to come who has not been to Church since 2005. He is a guy who joined the church, hurricane Katrina took forced him out of Louisiana and when he got here to Maryland he had a Stroke which paralyzed his left side. He has been through some rough times but his faith in Christ has pulled him through all of those trials. We were able to find some church clothes for him to wear and then he committed to come to church and he did. He made sure to come and talk with me afterward to let me know that he had made it. It was awesome to see him there. The choir performance went great, we sang hymns 264, 265 and Army of Helamon. 
On Thursday there was going to be a stress seminar for all of the missionaries in the zone. On Thursday at 5 a.m. Elder Urses woke me up and then preceded to tell me that his shoulder had popped out of its socket in his sleep and that he could not move it at all. It was stuck at a 45 degree angle. We called the members we live with to find out where the nearest hospital that would be open was. They came down and decided that Bro. Michaelson would drive us to the ER at Frederick Memorial. We shoved elder Urses in the back of the van and took off to the ER, making sure that we stopped at McDonald's for a sausage McMuffin because no trip to the ER is complete without McDonald's. Once we got there we ended up waiting another 2 hours for a doctor and then eventually 2 hours later Elder Urses was released with is shoulder popped back in to its socket. We made it to the stress meeting just in time for it to end but we made it. While there the president announced that P-Day starts as soon as we get up and just some time between 6:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. we have to have 1 hour of studies. It has been hard this past week to meet with our investigators just because they keep canceling appointments but this next week is going to be great. 
Have a Great Week!
Love,
Elder Datwyler
