|Our MTC district - Jeff and Kay Bunn, Sister Yazzie and Brother Gubler -- our instructors, Jerry and Irene Hansen, and Michael and Debra Newcum|
Sister Yazzie is half Navajo -- thus the unusual name -- and is a very experienced teacher. Brother Gubler served his mission in Germany and Austria, and he too is a gifted teacher. They were great with our group. Imagine being in your 20's and being assigned to teach a group of people who have years of church service and experience, who have been bishops and stake presidents and relief society presidents. But all of our district were humble and eager to learn, and our teachers were supportive and helpful.
The Hansens are from Sandy, Utah, and are headed to Indonesia to teach family history. They don't know the language, haven't lived outside the country, and don't really know much about family history. They are an inspiration. They start family history training in Salt Lake City tomorrow morning at 10:30.
Michael and Debra Newcum are going to Modesto California to support the members and leaders. They are from Dallas and know the Packards. We really enjoyed them. Elder Newcum has a great sense of humor, and Sister Newcum is full of enthusiasm and love for everyone. They left this afternoon to drive to California.
We will miss all of them.
