New Grandbaby and Zone Leader Council . . .

His name is William Kenneth Brooks. He was born Thursday, September 9th in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Darin (our daughter) and Mike Brooks. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 8 oz. When we left on our mission we had 3 grandchildren. When we return next year, they will be 7 (6 beautiful granddaughters and now a handsome grandson). Darin, Will and the family are doing great and should be home today. Needless to say, we feel very, very blessed. Does it get any better than this!

On Friday, we had Zone Leaders Council here at the mission home. This meeting is held every month and give us an opportunity to meet with these great young missionaries for training and reporting. Pictured l-r are: Elder Poujol from Honduras and Elder Riches from Grantsville, Utah who are our two assistants; Elder Rivas from Panama, Elder Evans from Layton, Utah, Elder Malca from Peru, Elder Coles from SLC, Utah, Elder Pereira from Chile, Elder Christensen from Thatcher, Arizona, Elder Navarro from Peru, Elder Welling from Beaverton, Washington, Elder Uceda from Tampa, Florida, Elder States from Midvale, Utah, Elder Aguilera from Honduras, Elder Diaz from Chile, Elder Cuesta from Ecuador, Elder Moncada from Honduras, Elder Vargas from Honduras, Elder Gimenez from Argentina, Elder Castillo from Honduras, Elder Service from SLC, Utah, Elder Barra from Chile and Elder Silva from Honduras. It is such a great opportunity to serve with such fine missionaries.

After more than 33 years of marriage, Susie is still light as a feather.
