Departing Group, Monday Night

2018-3-26 Departing Group (57)We had a wonderful testimony meeting with these good missionaries.  They each shared a meaningful experience from their mission, and their testimony.  It’s incredible to imagine small groups like this all over the world, doing the same, on the eves of their departures home.  This is good work.  The Spirit is with us, and what we teach is true.  None of this would be possible, or would happen if it weren’t.2018-3-26 Departing Group (58)2018-3-26 Departing Group (59)After sharing all things good, we went over the departure packets, with their flight information, some gifts from us, and other fun things like their Christmas tree ornament, a DVD of all the letters they sent to and received from Pres Lewis, a digital copy of all of their areas and assignments, maps of their areas, PDFs of all of the By Their Fruits Newsletters, and a special mission pin or pendant.2018-3-26 Departing Group (60)2018-3-26 Departing Group (61)2018-3-26 Departing Group (62)2018-3-26 Departing Group (63)Then everyone marked The Wall of Honor in the garage.2018-3-26 Departing Group (64)2018-3-26 Departing Group (65)2018-3-26 Departing Group (67)2018-3-26 Departing Group (68)2018-3-26 Departing Group (70)2018-3-26 Departing Group (71)2018-3-26 Departing Group (72)Checking suitcase weight:2018-3-26 Departing Group (73)2018-3-26 Departing Group (74)We topped off the evening by playing a rousing round of Rhythm Sticks!2018-3-26 Departing Group (75)2018-3-26 Departing Group (77)2018-3-26 Departing Group (79)2018-3-26 Departing Group (80)2018-3-26 Departing Group (83)2018-3-26 Departing Group (86)We declared a tie in our championship round!2018-3-26 Departing Group (88)Then it was time for bed.  Morning comes quickly.  Elder Tapia has the first flight out.  We’ll be getting up at 3:30 a.m.  Sleep tight, everyone!2018-3-26 Departing Group (90)2018-3-26 Departing Group (93)
