We Said Good-bye to wonderful Missionaries on June 27 and 28 2011

What a fantastic group of Missionaries! We will miss them. We love them. They have left the City of Santiago better than they found it. They have served faithfully. Each one of these missionaries had a unique and special mission designed very carefully and lovingly by our Father in Heaven. Even though we have all served together in the same mission, each mission has been drastically different. That is because each of these Elders and Sisters is unique and beautiful with different needs and hopes and dreams and futures. We so enjoy seeing how the Lord creates a unique experience tailored especially to meet each missionary's needs and teach him or her exactly what he or she needs to know and learn and become. It is such a privilege for us to be a part of this magnificent work!

It gets more difficult to let go of each wonderful group of missionaries that completes their missions. We shed tears of sadness because they are leaving us and tears of happiness because they have become such lovely young servants of our Father in Heaven. We will miss every one of these fine Elders and Sisters. We love them and will keep them forever in our hearts and prayers.

We also said farewell to three wonderful Missionaries from the Chile, Santiago North Mission on June 28. President and Sister May and their daughter Sarah completed their mission service and returned home to Utah. They have been such a strength and blessing to us. We will miss them tremendously, but we have learned so much from their example of true Christ-like love and charity, and we are better for having known them. We love them and honor them. We know our associations with them will last throughout eternity.
