|Welcome to our home! We're excited to host the Farewell Breakfast for our four lovely, seasoned missionaries who will be going home at the beginning of next week.|
|The early birds, (Sister Lewis, Snodgress and Miller) are the first to offer their help in the final breakfast preparations.|
|Sisters Burton and Gordon have enjoyed being companions during Sister Burton's final transfer.|
|Sister Cottrell is an expert trainer for Sister Valladares. They are doing such a great job!|
|Everyone come and get it! Sister Mackenzie leads the way, with Sisters Avila and Aranda coming up behind. We had a breakfast casserole with fruit, orange rolls, and juice. The sisters seemed to enjoy the food, and I enjoyed having them in our home.|
|A quick pic of the sisters as they finish their breakfast.|
|Table 2 - Everyone looks happy and wide awake for 7:00 am!|
|Table 3 - Yes you're beautiful also.|
|Table 4 - Elder and Sister Jenkins are keeping Sisters Aranda and Schwartz in line.|
|Sister Kranendonk shares memories of serving with Sister Anderson.|
|Sister Burton tells us some of the things she learned from Sister Parker.|
|Sister Dashjav shares fond memories and experinces while serving with Sister Burton.|
Sister Schwartz shared a very touching tribute to Sister Falcon. She paid me NOT to show her crying on the blog - she said that's not her usual demeanor. She's usually all smiles.
Following breakfast, and hearing the beautiful testimonies of our departing sisters, we adjourned to the Christus for a final group picture . What a beautiful group of young missionaries !! (That's including the couple in the middle, of course.) Our four departing sisters are sitting in the front: Sister Falcon, Sister Anderson, Sister Burton, and Sister Parker.
The next thing on the agenda was the traditional singing of 'God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again."
