We have been trying to connect with President Roberts for the past two days. We finally talked to him today. We have been released. We are no longer missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is always emotional to put that name tag on and then to take it off. We have walked away from the life we loved and the people we love to return to the family we love. I commented yesterday that I could feel that the mantel had been lifted from our shoulders even before we were released. Elder Anthony had felt the same thing.
