There is Always a Goodbye!

The day after we receive new Elders into the Mission, we have to say goodbye to some of our best missionaries.  September 12 and 13 were no exception.  Elder Mohrman and Sister Welch have served the Lord and are outstanding missionaries.  I have felt the power and authority of their calling when I have been in their trainings and teaching lessons.  You are both remarkable.  We will miss you both.

 Elder Mohrman's family met him at the Mission home.  The family had dinner and spent the evening with us. 

Hello to his Mom and Dad

 Hello to his sister, who surprised him.  He was not expecting her!

We said goodbye to Elder Mohrman that evening and my heart was sad and happy as we stood at the end of the walkway and waved goodbye as they drove away.

The next morning we took Sister Welch to the airport to meet her family.  Again, the flight was early.....but we found the family!

Thank you Elder Morhman and Sister Welch for being a part of this mission and a part of President's and my life.
As I have come to know, goodbyes are still very hard!
