When they come, others leave us!

On June 12, 2013 we welcomed our five missionaries to the Mission Home that have faithfully served our Father in Heaven and His Son.  They are truly remarkable--I have seen miracles happen to each of these great missionaries.

We will genuinely miss them!  We wish them success in the 
days and weeks to come!

 I will miss them more than I can say.  They are miracle-working missionaries!

 The next morning we met Sister Schwab's parents at the office and watched a wonderful and happy reunion!

 There is always more bags and suitcases than people!

 Waiting at the train station--these missionaries cannot count the times they have stood on the 'spoor' of Leiden Centraal Station!  Today is the last as a missionary.

 This is it!  Time to say goodbye at the passport check!  With tickets in hand we send them on to the next adventure in their lives.  They are converted and committed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! They are successful missionaries of the Belgium Netherlands Mission. They know why they came and they know the difference they made in the lives of others.  They have made a difference in the life of President and me. We feel so blessed for the opportunity to be a part of their lives.  Heavenly Father, thank you for the countless blessings in my life.   Met heel veel leifde, tot te volgende keer!
