    President and Sister Padovich,
    Elder Gubler and I served in Lusaka in 2004 and 05. We lived at 20 Mutende Road and Elder G. was a counselor to President Jenkins. What a treat it has been to find your blog. It brings back such great memories, traveling those same roads and loving the same members. We met you in SLC last spring at the missionary reunion. However, at that time we were unaware of our connection.
    Today we stopped to visit with a dear friend, Emma Alice Crist. The first thing we saw and heard was that you were Mission President in the newly formed Zambian mission. It seems that Elder Gubler baptised Arlene's parents many years ago in Terre Haute Indiana. In fact he even held Arlene and her siblings on his lap when his companion was teaching the lessons. The children called them "the teachy boys." We wish we had known the connection when we met you in SLC.
    We were able to attend the temple in St. George when Carl received his endowments.
    We look forward to following your success as you serve in that special part of Heavenly Fathers vineyard.
    Love, Glen & Rachel Gubler
