Saying good-bye to our missionaries is never easy! We will miss them. The Mission will miss them! Their service here will always be remembered. It is a treasured time that will never be forgotten and now they move forward to the next chapter of their lives.

Before our missionaries leave I have them write their testimonies and leave it with me. I want to share part of one of the testimonies is a perfect expression of how missionaries feel when they leave the Mission. "I just wanted you to know that I loved my mission, I loved it with all my heart, it's indeed been the greatest 2 years of my life this far. I would never ever trade these 2 years for anything. They were the hardest more trying years of my life, but they were also the most joyful and wonderful years as well. ....I love the Master and I know without any hesitation that He is my one and only Savior, I will always follow Him. The Mission helped me to truly come to know the Master. I love this glorious Gospel and I know that it is true...
We love our Missionaries
