Farewells and Welcomes, Again - September 2014

 Update from the last blog.  Here's the new missionaries, with their trainers, who came a day late from the Provo MTC last month.  Of course they are seasoned missionaries by now!

Elders and their Trainers:

Waiting to take going home pictures at the temple.  Our Office Elders:

I didn't realize I was so short til I came on our mission and all the missionaries stand next to me :)

We had a split departure in September - E. Pali's passport was lost in transit when sent for a visa to travel through New Zealand.  He ended up staying 3 weeks longer in the mission.  He was such a good sport about his delay.  We will miss him! 
Goodbyes at the airport:
