November 2017 Departing Missionaries

We just can’t explain how hard it is to say good-bye to these wonderful seasoned missionaries. It should get easier, but  we have yet to feel that. In fact, it’s the opposite….it is getting more and more difficult.

Sigh.

We let the missionaries that are going home go and spend the entire morning in the Tucson temple. Then we join them right before noon. What an amazing group of missionaries.

(Sister Browning was on her way home from Utah so she missed being in the temple with this group.)

Our wonderful lone Sister Nuttall. The rose of the whole group.

Dinner at the mission home.

Oh we love all of you!

Getting their packet of flight information and other important things as they get ready to leave in the morning.

Elder Bradfield’s parents came to pick him up. It was wonderful to meet them in person. We don’t get that chance very often. Thank you Bradfield’s!!

Our amazing AP’s (Elder Medina and Elder Duncan) and Elder West (one of our office Sr Missionaries) who do so much to make our transfer weeks run as smoothly as possible. THANK YOU!!

Up early early the next morning to get everyone to the airport on time.

Last minute shuffling of items and trying to make sure the bags don’t exceed the weight limit.

Sister Nuttall knows how to get her suitcase to close even though it’s bulging. Something every missionary becomes expert at!

Now off to the airport!

Checking in and saying the last good-byes. We don’t like this part.

Thank you ATM Missionaries for your service!!

We love you and wish you the best.
