Glimpses of Elder Odom

A lot of these have been on Facebook, but...

Triple Threat

A few weeks ago I received an email from Jarom.  He said he had a great P-day playing football with about twenty missionaries, but he had gotten sick.  I thought perhaps he had a cold or something.  The next week he mentioned that he had been sick with Typhoid...WHAT???  The next week (week three) we find out it was so much more than that.  He was sick with E coli, Typhoid, and Typhoid fever.  He spent a night in the mission home and received a blessing from President Carlos.  He was in bed for two weeks - the first week not eating anything at all.  He said he lost twenty pounds in five days.  He told his Dad in an email that he had never been so sick in his life.  He mentioned in today's email that he still has problems with his stomach.  Through it all we felt a great peace.  Heavenly Father takes care of His missionaries!
