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.

Missionary update

In a previous blog, Eric spoke about his experience of eating a baby chicken, partial developed in a egg.  Here is the video of him eating it....
This is what it looks like up close

When I receive his SD card, I wished that it came with descriptions of who and where etc.  But the pictures are still fun to look at.

This must be where he translates Sacrament meeting into Lao, Live. 
In Eric's email this week he was so happy that he was not transferred.  He said that he has been able to accomplish so much and that he was not ready to hand over the  work to someone else until he accomplishes more.  This Saturday they are taking a family to the temple to do some family work, and he is so excited for this opportunity.
He did say that Christmas as a missionary is the best.  I guess he is still getting pretty spoiled.  :)
