We send you Thanksgiving greetings from the Argentina Bahia Blanca Mission where we are on the second half of our mission health visit here: Nov 9-15, and Nov 23-27.
Here Elder Petersen, the area medical advisor, is summing up his 45-minute "Missionary Health & Safety" presentation with the 4 main points that will secure maximum health for missionaries (or anyone) anywhere in the world. 1.Drink a minimum of 2 liters of water a day of only purified water. 2. Eat a balanced diet of well-prepared, non-contaminated food; only well-done meat. 3. Wash hands often -- for 30 seconds of vigorous scrubbing with soap.. 4. Exercise - 30 minutes for 6 days a week: 20 min cardiovascular; 10 min flexibility one day, then alternate with 10 min of strength training.Unlike the big multi-zone conferences with 50-75 missionaries, this mission president is doing single zone conferences. This zone conference on Nov. 11 had 21 missionaries. The zone conference on Tuesday, Nov. 10 had 24 missionaries.
