We were all up just after 3:00 a.m. to begin this emotional day. Many never went to bed at all last night. It was a short night. I didn’t sleep at all either. During nights like this, I feel like a Mom, worrying about my kids, hoping for my kids, praying for my kids.
But the time has come and these members of our family are launching into their next places and their next experiences.Laundry around here is continual. We have 22 beds to change before tonight.Farewell to the Mission HomeFinal instructions and prayer:We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m.Elder Sailsbery’s parents are coming later this morning to pick him up.He said goodbye to his fellow servants.And they’re off!And we are here, to carry on on this calm summer morning. Nothing inside of me was calm. My heart was breaking.God speed, dear friends.
