A Farewell And A Homecoming

Today in church a brother and sister from one family had a farewell and a homecoming. Their family is good friends with our family. Kristina is one of Seth's very good friends She flies out Tuesday to begin her mission in the Chile Santiago East mission. Her brother John just returned two weeks ago from his mission in the Dominican Republic. He reported on his missionary labors.

It was a tender experience to sit in Sacrament Meeting and watch the two of them together. Their family has made and will continue to make sacrifices to support missionary work. My heart went out to their Mom and Dad because their entire family has only been all together for two weeks before another missionary leaves for another year and a half. It was just a nice experience.

 "Behold, I will send for many fishers,
 saith the Lord,
 and they shall fish them;
 and after will I send for many hunters, 
and they shall hunt them from every mountain,
 and from every hill,
 and out of the holes of the rocks."
Jeremiah 16:16

Lots of missionaries these days 
fulfilling this ancient prophecy. :)
