November 2014 - Comings and Goings

It's still very hard to say goodbye!  Welcome to Elder and Sister Keele (left front) who arrived a week before the departure of our office couple - Elder and Sister Wall (right front) to be trained as our new office couple.
Below - Office Elders, Assistants, the Keeles, the Hills and the Walls.

Our visit to the Art Market turned out to be a missionaries in training drum session!

Sister Hill found a puppy who has found a home in the Art Market.  Simba (the mission home dog) probably wouldn't appreciate her bringing him home:)

We gather for our Monday night farewell dinner and testimony meeting for the departing missionaries:

Our farewell photo op wearing the Kente banner for the Ghana Accra West Mission:

Heading out to the BUSH with Elder Dalton!


I'm only 2 transfers behind with posting - I finally realized that it's been hard to keep up since we averaged a transfer, an arrival or a departure - plus other events - every 3 weeks the last 6 months.  Looking to 2015 slowing down a little (:  I really am an optimist by nature (:

  1. So great to see my son, Elder Bond, arriving in the mission field. He has been learning so much these past few months. Thank you for your care for and service to these missionaries.
