New Nurses get Trained
In our mission we have "assigned nurses".
These sisters are trained to be the first line of defense against disease, colds, and the flu.
They teach classes on prevention and cleanliness to our other missionaries.
They listen to each missionary who has aches, pains, colds or vomits and
helps them decide if it is life threatening and they need to go to the hospital,
or if they need to drink more water and rest during lunch time.

"Nurse" Sister Vasques questions her companion, Sister Rimachi, about her health.
While Sister Furness listens to Sister Bronson's ailments.
Everyone is ready to help the missionaries in their 2 assigned Zones stay healthy.
On the right is Sister Olson, she is a real Registered Nurse, and we are
so happy to have her in the mission.
She will begin helping with nursing duties after her 12 week training is completed.
