La Despedida--Another Group of Missionaries Returns Home

This just keeps getting harder. It is interesting how much you can love missionaries, even after just a short time with them.  After only six weeks, we were so sad to see the first group go, then six weeks later the second. Last night we bid farewell to our third group of missionaries. I thought as we got used to this, it would get easier, but the truth is, it gets harder.  Here is a picture of the latest group we are missing at the moment.

Final Transfers
Elder Alberto Arradillas--Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico
Elder Nefi Diaz--Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico
Elder Valdrain Rivera, Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico
Elder Ivan Salinas--Estado De Mexico, Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico
Elder Erick Osorio--Pachuca, Hidalgo, Mexico
Elder Alan Martinez--Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico
Elder Jonathan Heath--Kaysville, Utah, USA
Elder Talon Kartchner--Blanding, Utah, USA
Elder Alexander Farley--Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
Elder  Joseph Kay--Swan Lake, Idaho, USA
Elder Colby Phillips--Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA
Elder Graham McNeil--Concord, California, USA
Elder Juan Garcia--Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico
Elder David May--Bakersfield, California, Mexico
Elder Fernando Molina--Tulancingo, Hidalgo, Mexico
Elder Victor Garcia--Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico
Elder Michael Hartman, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

 I had to add this picture. The elder below was asking for references for girls to date. Might as well apply the techniques he learned in the mission field, right? And President Wagner had a reference for him that he was writing down.  Good luck Elder!

We miss them all, and wish them the very best!!
