Another Farewell . . . Senior Couples
We are sad to announce that two of the senior couples are completing their missions and returning home. The Smiths on the left have been serving in the temple. And although they did not work with us directly, we benefited greatly from their service. We also very much enjoyed spending Thanksgiving and Christmas day with them, and sharing family nights. We will miss them very much.
The Crocketts, on the right, have served faithfully in Manzanillo, a district on the coast. They have served tirelessly for two years and will be greatly missed. Sister Crockett did not speak any Spanish when they arrived but has done great learning the language and communicating with the wonderful Saints in her area. Brother Crockett served a mission in Brazil, but did speak some Spanish, however, he has also improved since arriving here. Together they worked in the small branches helping with member support and reactivation. They are leaving behind a huge whole in the district, not only because they personally have done so much and will be missed, but also because we do not have anyone to replace them.
The good both of these couples have done cannot be adequately expressed. We are so grateful for our association with them and wish them a wonderful, and healthy life back at home.
Thank you so much for being a part of our lives! We love you all!!
