Again I feel I need to precursor Elder Maki's letter with some explanation. He met with an Orthopod (Orhtopedic Surgeon) and had an MRI and consult with him. This particular Doctor is not a member of the church and is known to be very blunt and direct with his patients. We can tell that Elder Maki is still discouraged at his physical limitations and discomfort. However we have talked to his doctors as well as his Mission President and we know that he will be able to recover in the mission field. Dr Staheli is confident that with steroids and other treatments as well as physio therapy he will get better. So, on to the letter.....
Yesterday was my spiritual boost for the week, we were at a noche de hogar (FHE) and it was really good, and then the girl, Michelle, afterward told us something that has been happening to her for a long time, (this came after giving sis. rodriguez a blessing for her back, and elizabeth a blessing of comfort,) and she asked us to give her a blessing of protection, an evil presence has been following her around and was looking for something... so we asked her where it happened most, she said in her room. i go in and imediately feel the presence. I look at her, and i tell her it was there... we did the same thing we did with sister Nava and Maria, we dedicated the home and we cast out the Devils, i was literally talking to him, and he was talking back, but my faith surpassed my fear. and I commanded him to leave. after the blessing and dedication, we gave Michelle the blessing of protection and I passed out...dont worry, it was because of the spirit... like Ammon and his brethren.. It was amazing.. very powerful.
