February 2014 Departing Missionaries

As another batch of departing missionaries began arriving at the mission office, feelings of excitement and anticipation were in the air--and a little sadness for President Monahan and me. We love these wonderful missionaries and will miss seeing them in the Urdaneta Mission. At the same time, we know they have strong testimonies of Jesus Christ and His Atonement and we pray they will continue to be a powerful influence for good in all their endeavors.

February Departing Batch
(L-R) Elder Savage, Elder Barney, Elder Tiempo, Elder Policarpio, Elder Udani, Elder Dela Cruz, Sister Alvaro, Sister Bonifacio and Sister Leuluai.

Elder Policarpio                                      Elder Udani

Elder Tiempo                                      Elder Dela Cruz

Elder Barney                                           Sister Alvaro

Sister Bonifacio                                      Sister Leuluai

The elders helped put shelves together for President Mortensen who is the Mission Supply Manager and 1st Counselor in the mission presidency.

At the mission home, the sisters took a little break after preparing the tables for lunch.

After their work was finished outside, the elders were happy to enjoy the cool air in the mission office while waiting for their interviews.

We gathered at the mission home for a testimony meeting.  Afterward, Sister Mortensen, Mission Office Secretary, gave the missionaries their envelopes that she had lovingly prepared for them.

We had a nice lunch before getting the luggage in the vehicles and preparing to leave for the bus station in Dagupan.

Sister Alvaro's family came to the mission office to pick her up. They were so excited to see her!
