What did we do today? Today was a hard day because it was the day we told our family and some of our close friends good-bye. Things and people change in two years.
|One of the hardest people to say good-bye to was my almost 92 year old Mother. Life can be very fragile. Sometimes you wonder what you will be called upon to sacrifice for the opportunity to serve as a missionary.|
|How exciting that my brother and sister-in-law from Washington State were in town for general conference. It was great to be able to see them and tell Russ and Kaylynn good-bye.|
|My sister and brother-in-law just returned from a serving in Jerusalem.They arrived home August 23. We are both wearing our name tags.|
|Dara is a good friend. She has been a part of our family since 1989. She has eaten dinner with us just about every Sunday since we met her.|
|We will miss the Prestwich family as well as the rest of our children and their families. In the past 6 weeks we have been able to spend time with each of our children and our 15 grandchildren.|
|We had hoped to run into some of our young adults from our old ward at the Strong's home. They didn't come but we had fun visiting with the Strong's. They are the salt of the earth. We are blessed to have such great friends.|
