June 2015 Departing Missionaries

The feeling was bitter-sweet as President Monahan and I bid farewell to our last departing batch before we finish our mission July 1st. These young missionaries have served diligently and faithfully for 2 years or 18 months. It seems as if it was just yesterday that we welcomed them to the mission. Time has flown by for all of us. Each elder and sister has grown so much in their testimony and love for their Savior. We love them and wish them continued happiness in all their future endeavors.

Sister Monahan made the missionaries' favorite dessert...graham cake.
We did something different for this batch. We hired two vans instead of a bus.
 Goodbye dear missionaries....'till we meet again.
