This is the sweet message I got back from Hermana Gurley:
Dear Sister Taylor,
I received your "dear elder" last night! Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words! As to Hermana Taylor's academic prowess- I am well aware! She is our resident Libro de Mormon expert! She is incredibly gifted, and I am just lucky to have been attached to her hip for the past 6 weeks! I wish your family the best!
