This past week we had the sad responsibility of bidding farewell to Elder and Sister Haertel. They served for six months in the Santiago District of the mission and did amazing things there in a very short time. Words really cannot express how much we will miss them. When they turned in their mission papers, some people suggested they would not go foreign due to only being able to serve for such a short time. We were so very blessed, however, that they were able to come and serve with us.
At the end of our mission council meeting, the missionaries who worked with them in the Santiago Zone suggested we all sing "God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again."
Elder and Sister Haertel--We love you both!! We will forever be blessed because of your willingness to serve! Thank you so very much for being willing to sacrifice your family, your time and your resources to be with us!!
