Elder McGhie's experiences as a missionary in Peru.

November 13, 2012

I didnt know that he would have such a hard time adjusting!!

Hi, just Carrie again!!  I dont mean to sound ungrateful because I am so very grateful that Spencer is home from his mission but I had no idea it would be so hard on him to adjust from being a missionary to living as a return missionary!!  It is so hard to see him struggle and find him crying and not be able to do anything to make it better..............kind of like when they are on their missions, you just pray for them and then pray some more!!  I dont know if other moms have had their missionaries struggle after returning home but  I just wanted to say that I had no idea that Spencer would have such a struggle adjusting back to living the life of a non-full time missionary!!  Wow................we are still learning here at the McGhie house!! But we are also very blessed too!!! =)

Dear Bloomer's,
I just wrote you this very long response and it wouldnt let me post it as it said it was too long and then it just was gone and I am not very happy with blogger right now!! =)
Thanks for writing and asking about Spencer. He is doing much better, I think cominmg home with no strick rules to follow and each day planned ahead of time and only one thing to worry about, preaching the Gosple sort of confused him as he wasnt sure what he was supposed to be doing! But as the days have gone by he has figured out how to keep being that person he was on his mission and put him together with the good kid he was before he left!! He is in Peru right now, actually he is on his way home right now, we all went down with him after Thanksgiving and we drove and drove and drove some more to see all the people in the different places that Spencer served! We were in LIma for a day then on to Huanuco(my husband said it was a 5 hour drive but he didnt think that there werent freeways so 9 and a half hours later we finally got there, then on to Huancayo and then back to Lima and then I flew home and My husband, Spencer and his little sister stayed and our married daughter of 6 months and her husband flew down and they all took a guided 4 day hike on the INca trail and porters carried everything and set up their camp and all the had to do was hike and not get sick!! The 4th day ended in Machu Pitcchu and finally they made it back to their hotel and crashed with exhaustion, my 15 year old daughter woke up this morning sick with food poisioning or something like that and she couldnt get out of bed so Spencer and my daughter and husband are flyin home now and my husband and my daughter are still in Cusco and I am just praying that she will be better tomorrow and be able to come home but she had a blessing that said she would regain her health so it might take her a few days, I dont know?

Anyway, Spencer has adjusted much better and he is starting to be his old self only a little older and mature and directed. If you want to write us my email is csmcghie@signs.com and Spencers is the same but without the c st the beginning, smcghie@signs.com. I am gong to get the blog all caught up with pictures and also write more about his coming home and his homecoming talk and the Peru trip so I am not quite donewith the blog!! It may take me years to finish it but I hope not because blogger will bring it out as a book for you, for a fee of course and then Spencer will have a history of his mission!!

Thanks for asking about Spencer! Keep in touch! I hope you all are doing well!!

Carrie =)
