Mormon Missionaries caught in Brussels terrorist attacks return to Utah!
Mormon missionaries Mason Wells (19) and Joseph Empey (20), have returned to their home Utah, after suffering injuries from last week’s terrorist attacks in Brussels.
The Associated Press made a report on Thursday that both men who were present at the Brussels Zaventem Airport during the explosion will make full recoveries. But it will take some time for their minds and bodies to heal.
Both Wells and Empey sustained second-degree burns and other significant injuries from the attack but their parents are hopeful and staying positive because their boys are tough—already wanting to resume with their normal lives.
Joseph’s mother opened up and she’s feeling thankful saying:
“They are young, healthy boys, thank goodness and their bodies are healing fast.”
And according to an unidentified close family friend, Mason had many injuries but is receiving the best medical care:
“is receiving top-notch medical care” for a broken heel on his left foot, which also has a ruptured Achilles, and will have skin grafts and other operations done on his foot and hand.”
And we can’t forget reunions with family. Masons 17-year-old brother, Colby couldn’t be happier to see his big brother as they had a wonderful reunion. It’s great that these dedicated men are staying strong and healing properly.
Sadly, 35 others died from the Brussels terrorist attacks and over 340 people were injured. Remember to always be thankful for the days you get to wake up and smell the morning air. Life is never promised and it’s def something we shouldn’t take for granted.
I’m happy to hear that these two are home and healing. We’re sending our positive vibes to the families and everybody effected in this terrible tragedy.
