Next week we lose another crop of excellent missionaries. President Lewis has started what we call the “exit interviews” today with those who are local, so when the outliers arrive, there won’t be so many to visit with. This gives him a little more time with each departing missionary before they go.
Elder Broadbent and Elder Budica will be heading home soon. We are really going to miss them. They and their companions joined us for lunch today after their interviews.Then Elder Cornelison came. He is leaving us today to start his next grand adventure in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission. We were hoping we’d get to keep him here. Tonight Hermana Streuling came with Hermana Dee for her exit interview. Then we had a good visit over dinner. It is really hard to think of missionaries actually leaving us. AGH.
