Elder Nay Gets Hit by a Motorcycle
Elder Nay in the hospital
We were half way through district meeting when we saw through the window that President Ralhf had come to check on us. That put everyone on edge, especially the district leader, Elder Marshall, who, despite not really planning, taught a great and very helpful lesson about companionship inventory. Afterwards President told us that the real reason he came was to check on Elder Nay because he had been hit by a single motor (motorcycle) down in Lamut the night before and was rushed up to the hospital in Santiago. As they left, I caught up with him to see if i could go check on Michael. President Ralhf instructed me to check up on him every now and then to keep him company. He was battered and bloody, but sustained no broken bones. The accident happened just two weeks before he goes home. So we spent some time and got to chat and learn a little about each other's missions. Michael's last two cycles have been the only time in our missions that we were even on the same side of the Cauayan mission, although we live just a couple of blocks apart in Utah. That's how we ended up there. It was good. As you can see from the picture, he was in pretty good spirits for a guy in a Philippino hospital. You can get all the details on the accident and see some great bloody pictures on Elder Nay's blog: http://eldernay.blogspot.com/ Mahal ko kayo, Elder Allen
