Vickie Walker helping others with Cans of Comfort program
Our family had Elder Walker and his companion for dinner numerous times when he
served in our area (--fresh out of the MTC). He repeatedly told us how much he
loved serving a mission. Our family did not notice that he had any physical
limitations although once he mentioned he could not be a missionary on a bike.
He never discussed his health issues or what happened to him as a teenager. He
was focused on being a dedicated missionary! I did notice when I asked him
about his family, he spoke of his mother with such devotion and admiration. It
was obvious they are close. Now that I understand more of his life, it reminds
me again of what Jesus Christ can do for us if we follow Him. The story of the
Walker family is an inspiration!
Yes, the story of the Walker family is truly an inspiration. Thank you for your
examples of strength you now provide others to draw from. Your endurance is
admirable to say the least...inspiring.
I read this story this morning and my husband read it tonight. We are both
amazed at this family's resilience and determination to press on despite
tremendous hardship.Truly inspiring! May all of the best things
come their way.
