Here is my story of when I heard about Alexis:
As a missionary after a good day working I walked into the flat to check the messages. My heart stopped for a few seconds when I heard my Mother's voice on the other line saying "Bronny I need to talk to you tonight". They got a hold of me and told me of Alexis' situation. I felt helpless, nervous, worried, and scared for my big sister. I sat there in my chair for quite a while crying and pondering everything I was just told. Once all of the tears were flushed out of me, like a waterfall (I cry easily just like my mom), I prayed and I felt peace. Being so far away from loved ones and not being able to do much is always tough. I knew everything would be alright. The following morning I was able to talk to Alexis and all I wanted to do was let her know how much I loved her. I am so grateful for her. I wanted to ask her a trillion questions and find out everything that was going to happen with her. I didn't know what to say to her over the phone so we just talked and talked as if I was sitting on the couch with her. I cherished that time we talked together, being able to hear her voice and listen to her tell me about how her life was overwhelming. Then she told me about all of the support she had from friends, family, neighbors, ward members and others. I've been able to see it on the blog. Every time I read the blog I try to think of how I can show how thankful I am for every person that has shown their support for my big sister. I can't do much but say two words, thank you. It is truly amazing to see how much love and support my family has been given. I am grateful for every single person who has helped them.
If you read this and see Alexis give her a nice missionary hand shake or a big hug if it's allowed, from her little brother, Elder Kaufusi, because I LOVE my sister no matter where I am in the world.
