The Last.....




The last of everything in the mission field took place this past weekend for 10 Elders and Hermana Licona; the last dinner in the mission home, the last interview with President Cox, the last sleepover in the office, the last testimony shared as missionaries, the last pictures......This generation consisted of from bottom to top, Hermana Licona, Elders PerezK., FloresM.,GonzalezA.,Robles, Bolio, Robledo, Garza, Leo, Buzis and Saucedo. The parents and families of Elders Gonzalez and Buzis were here to attend church with them, meet some of their families and just hang out. I was able to take a picture of Elder Gonzalez with his family while they were waiting for interviews with President Cox. Elder Gonzalez was always one of these Elders President could depend upon to carry the load...no matter what he was called upon to do. It is always so fun to meet the families. I also was able to capture a picture of Elders Hatton and Robles sharing a few LAST thoughts as they walked together through the airport. They had served together for 9 months, first as Zone Leaders and then as Assistants. We will miss the focus and motivation of Elder Robles in our mission........It is always hard to say goodbye to great missionaries.

O.K.--which is the hardest; the FIRST or the LAST days?? I think I know the answer to that. Both must be very rewarding!!
