So our big news this week is that Vicki and her two kid, Bethany and Leo got baptized! It was such a nice service and on Sunday they all got the gift of the holy ghost. Sister Wynder and I had fun keeping all the kids entertained during Sacrament meeting. It made me feel like an aunt again. The ward has been so great to the family…did I mention that she has six kids total? I just really admire this woman. She is incredible and often doesn’t get the credit she deserves. Our Stake President, President Stewart was there on Sunday because they called a new bishop in Newton Aycliffe. He knows us because his home ward is Darlington. He pulled me aside on his way out and just said how great it was to see this new family come into the church. He remarked that this is something that I will remember the rest of my mission and the rest of my life. I know this is true. In working with Sister Nolan, the friend who introduced her to the church, we have become good friends with her. She is a great lady with such a lovely family. This transfer we have helped her about once a week to paint her extension and it has just about finished up. It was fun to work alongside her temporally as well as spiritually. She is a good friend and influence to Vicki and many others around her, including us. Members that get involved in the work make all the difference!
Love, Sister Zurcher
