Elvira exemplifies the faithful saints. She and her husband joined the Church 15 years ago and were sealed in the Temple. After he died of cancer, she raised their two children alone.
She speaks good English and is infinitely patient with we "foreigners" who work with her in the office. We can't say enough about her wisdom.
Although trained as an architect, she prefers being employed by the Church as a visa worker.
In the Church she is the District and Branch YW leader, an Institute Teacher, Branch pianist, a dedicated VT, and constantly looking for missionary or reactivation opportunities.
We will miss her and all those like her. Our prayers are with them.
