Four days to go. . . TO GO

May Day
Joseph, his friend Matt and Tim leave for China on Thursday May 1. . . MAY DAY! MAY DAY! We are scrambling to get packed and ready-- tying up loose ends, making final travel arrangements and finishing up assignments and callings before departure. Stress can be both motivating and exciting.

Final Physical Therapy Evaluation
On Fiday, the University of Utah students did their final evaluation of Joseph before his treatment in China. They found some positive changes since his intensive physical therapy in December. Joseph's strength continues to increase as does his range of motion (hard work paying off). The changes are small but the current measurements will allow a baseline to compare the results of the therapy in China. One of the four students was unable to be there because of finals, the others were just finishing up their finals as well. Joseph took his last final on Thursday, he's finished for the semester.

Basement Progress
The walls are painted and everything is ready for new flooring on Monday and Tuesday. With trim and finishing touches on Wednesday we ought to be finished before Tim and Joseph disappears on Thusday leaving Mom and friends to move stuff back in (sigh).
Fast Sunday in May and June
Some of the employees of the Audiovisual Department as well as members of the Bennion Heights 8th Ward are joining us during the regular Fast Sunday in May and June in Joseph's behalf. We appreciate the many whose thoughts and prayers are with him. We can't fully express our feelings of love and appreciation for those who have helped out in so many ways, especially financially. We know the Lord will bless you, He is certainly blessing us beyond measure.

I can't believe how fast it's approaching. I'm happy I checked in and found out about the fast; word hadn't gotten to me yet. Many hugs and prayers are coming your way. Good luck! Hope it all goes better than expected!
