Fond Farewell & Welcomes, Again!

So the hardest part for me is seeing the missionaries I love leave the mission to return home.  Since this happens mostly every 6 weeks I should be used to it but it is hard to say goodbye!  We are happy the missionaries get to return to friends and family and wish them the best life has to offer, but we will miss them!

June Farewell!

Welcome Ward missionaries filling in with trainers until missionaries still in language training come from the MTC - in a couple of weeks.

 June 25 - New missionaries fresh from the MTC - from DR Congo, french speaking:  Lots of English still to learn!  We were expecting 4 but ended up with 2.  

Their trainers and English tutors:)

The one sure thing we can depend on remaining constant - CHANGE!  We'll miss the returning missionaries and wish them a wonderful post-mission life.  We watch for them on Facebook! - our post-mission information source:)

Welcome to all the new missionaries!
