Our last group of departing Missionaries!

Well, all good things come to an end; and we have come to our last group of missionaries that we will send home.
Sister Masters volunteered to go first to leave something behind with me.
Sister Bezdjian followed--donating a favorite sweater.
Sister Young had already gone through this procedure when she returned home because of health issues for 2 months last summer. She actually is making two donations...both have meaning to us.
 There you have it...Sisters Young, Bezdjian and Masters...three of our great sister missionaries will be leaving for home very early in the morning. We love and appreciate all these Sisters have done.  They truly served with all their heart, might, mind and strength.
Flashback! Three years ago, we arrived in the mission.  It seems like this was yesterday but it was actually June 2010.

 With that in mind, President wanted to leave the tie that he wore when he arrived...
 and I wanted to leave a piece of my skirt which I lovingly refer to as 'big brown'. This skirt has seen so much of Poland.
Godfrey was also at the mission home this week and we needed something from him.  He is part of our mission family....
...as is President Jarosz.  This is his favorite tie. I feel honored that he let me have it.
We appreciate all he and Godfrey have done for us and our missionaries over the past three years.  Now it's off to bed because we have a 4:00am airport run to make in the morning.  Our final early trip at the end of a transfer week.
FRIDAY MORNING 4:45am:
 Bright and cheery our sisters arrive at the airport. Thanks to Sister Hutchinson, we have boarding passes! That may not sound exciting to you; but what that means to us is that we get to wait in the line with 4 people instead of 40!
 One last picture with our wonderful sisters:  Sister Bezdzjian, Sister Masters and Sister Young.
We love these Sisters and wish them the best. They have all served well and given it their all. Much has been learned to help them with the rest of their lives.
That is one thing I love about a mission....all the life-lessons you learn that if implemented can change your eternity! I love being a full-time missionary and am sad that it is almost over.
