Letter & Photos from Terra's Ward Mission Leader

(From Renee) -- I received a text yesterday (with this picture), also sent to Sister Ward's mom from Terra's ward mission leader:

"Thank you for teaching these special young women all the virtues that Christ wants them to have.  They are a delight."  Br. Glutz

Then he later sent 3 more pictures in an email with this letter:

"Your daughters asked for me to send these three photos from the sealing session last week. Sister Ward was the reason that a spark was ignited under Tom to quit smoking when she got here last year. The same time I was being released as the Elders Quorum President in a branch that Deb and I were called to serve for 2 years. I have home taught the family off and on for over 20 years and got close, but never succeeded. 

It has now been over a year and he received the Melchizedek Priesthood a few months ago. It was wonderful how the Lord brought back Sister Ward for a 2nd time (I think our Stake President had something as a request for her, he was Bishop when she was in our ward) and brought a brand new and another wonderfully prepared sister to help them down the stretch to an eternal family. I felt it appropriate to ask President Bradley to ask the Mission President to have the missionaries come to the sealing. And permission was granted for them to come and enjoy the celebration. 

Again it is fun to watch them grow and teach."

Brother Glutz
