My heart goes out to the parents and families of these missionaries. Every parent prays nothing like this happens to their son while on a mission but life isn't fair sometimes and we have cope. I hope these two missionaries are able to continue to progress.

Bless you both and your families as well. It's a good lesson to each of us that life is unexpected and can only be what we make of it. May the Lord bless you as you work your way back.

We would just like to let both missionaries and their loved one that we hold you all close in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Heavenly Father's loving touch is definitely at work here. May your recoveries be swift and sure@

You should have included in your story Elder Hopkins, a missionary on the island of Chiloe, in Chile. He collapsed while jogging, and is recovering in the United States. His is a dramatic story of a relative of an investigator who called Emergency Services who revived him within minutes.

My heart goes out first to these mothers, and the burden they are carrying, as well as the missionaries, other family members and friends. It is frustrating to see the drastic difference in medical care these missionaries received due to the countries they were serving in. You should also have let us know who is paying for all of this? Are these poor families having to carry the financial burdens as well as the physical and emotional? Or is the church stepping up? Not only the massive medical expense but the loss in wages of the parents leaving home and disruption to life and routines for a long and unpredictable time period. Where are these families living? Who is caring for their other children at home? What impact and till is this taking? There's much more story to be told here. God bless them.

Heavenly Father is watching out for His children, blessing them with their needs. Praying for the missionaries, wherever they serve, and the families at home.

I am grateful for the blessings of the Lord on all people everywhere. This was a very touching article as well.

One thing I have learned in life is that God's work done in God's way will never lack God's materials. It's hard to watch someone you love battle their way back from brain injury. It's especially hard for the parents as their whole family suffers -- BUT, the whole family grows from it also! I've worked in a rehab hospital and watched people battle back from traumatic injury as well as strokes. The families grow closer and more cohesive as they help their loved one return to them. We aren't here on earth to have it easy. We're here to learn and to grow and to overcome obstacles and learn how to handle adversity as well as easy times. My heart goes out to both families AND both missionaries. I know Heavenly Father will bless them in ways we can't even imagine as well as blessing the lives of those with whom they come in contact. They are all in my prayers.

Re: SLCMom

None of what you demand is reported because it is not our business. If the family wishes to make it public, they can do so through the proper channels. For now, our sympathies are all they request. That should be sufficient for everyone.

I think SLC Mom was just expressing the reslistic concern for other aspects of the circumstances. I too hope they are getting help with additional concerns, and I am sure they are, but it would be great for them to get more. Our family received an abundance of help when a son was seriously injured and we will ever be grateful.

I wish these young men a speedy recovery.
