Saying good-bye is so difficult. But we did say good-bye to these wonderful missionaries in December. With abrazos and many tears we sent them back to their families.
The first group left us as scheduled on December 3rd. They served with obedience and faith and were leaders in our mission.
We had a second group leave us on December 17th. They were scheduled to depart after Christmas and miss the start of school in January so we sent them home early. It was a huge loss for us. We will miss this group of missionaries.
