I got to work with sister Sarah in Houston long ago at the Little Village day care center. Several of us rode together in the mornings and I remember whenever we picked up Sarah she was always so freshly full of enjoyment and singing and praising to the Lord. She was quite a sweet pattern to me when I was so young in the Lord. I am honored to have known her even for a little while..
