On January 27, 2011 Eric Merkley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. An aggressive cancer that we hope and the doctors to this point seem confident that is contained to one spot on his leg. Prognosis is good. Treatments and recovery will be long and painful.

The Language is coming along...

Eric emailed me today to let me know that not only was he emailing me, he was emailing me while doing his laundry!  Proud moment!
He is doing great and working really hard learning the language.  It sounds like they are focusing on Thai right now, but it is close to Laotian.  He said that he will be standing in line for lunch and will pull out the flash cards. 

What surprises him the most is that he feels the lessons go right over his head, but when he wakes up in the morning, it has stuck.

He loves Sundays.  He said that it recharges his batteries.  He would love to hear from everyone, as all missionaries do.  So if you get a moment, please write him.
