It is always a bittersweet experience to say good-bye to missionaries who have completed their missions.    We are sad to have them leave, but at the same time excited for their success, for their reunion with loved ones, and for the great adventure that lies ahead of them.

From the transfer meeting we go to the mission home.  We invited anyone who wished to go over on the trails for an hour before dinner with us.

Then we enjoyed a soup and salad bar with reminiscing, stories and laughter.

Thanks to President and Sister Nobbs for all they do!
We have several missionaries who serve in the PPM while they wait for visas.   On November 16 we said farewell to Elder Rosen who got his visa to go on to his mission in Taiwan.
