Update #2

Last night I was speaking with Morgan's mission president.  He is a great man.  He was telling us that he and his wife were praying at Morgans side and Morgans heart rate went up.  When they went to leave and got to the door her heart rate went back down.  He said "she knows we are there" He also was commenting on Morgan and her "great character" and how great of a missionary she is because of it.  I was telling him how Morgan is going to be so upset when she has to leave and he immediately said "yes she will!" I can't say enough about all the love, prayers, texts and visits.  It is truly amazing and there is no way to explain the feeling.  We were able to speak with Sister Moli family.  They are awesome.  We didn't know any details of the accident and they were able to explain it to us.  They were at the church and were leaving to go home to get ready for the ward Christmas party.  That is when they were hit from behind from a drunk driver.  It would be so easy to be angry right now but I refuse to go there.  That won't help anyone, especially Morgan.   Sister Moli was hit first.  She landed on her neck.  She had her hair in a low bun and thinks that helped cushion her fall.  Morgan was hit next.  The ward members witnessed the accident and helped them immediately.  They moved quickly and we know Morgan will benefit from that.  We are anxious to get to Morgan. Troy and I fly out tomorrow.  Grams is coming to hold down the fort and many other family members, neighbors and friends to help.  Thank you all again for your prayers and kind words.  We are so grateful!!

  1. Marcie… I know this is not the trip to Tahiti you were expecting but I'm so glad to hear that you can go down and be with Morgan. I'm sure that is going to help her immensely! We will keep up the prayers! I know you have lots of great help but please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. I'll take care of the linens from Saturday. All my love, Vicki xox

  4. Our daughter Soeur Mary Houtz is also serving in Tahiti, and she was good friends with Soeur Moli in the MTC. I have been reading your daughter's blog and loved hearing some of the details about her mission. She is such a sweetheart and a hard worker. I haven't been reading the past week because of a death in the family, but we Skyped with Mary today and heard what happened. We are praying for Morgan and are glad that you can be there with her. You will all be in our prayers. Mary said how amazing she has been and how kind she was when they first met and Mary was a little unsure about herself. Know that we are all interested in Morgan's recovery and healing. Susan Houtz
