Our December group of going home missionaries were split as to when they left the mission. Half went home before Christmas, and the others two weeks later. These pictures reflect the whole group as they all participated in the "Going Home" activities.
All 11 of the December departure batch.

The Good-Bye Picture
The five sister missionaries in this group are the FIRST missionaries to leave who were specifically called to the Philippines Cavite Mission. Up to this date, all missionaries who have gone home from Cavite, started their mission in the Philippines Manila Mission. It was very hard to see these sisters go. They have been with President Tye and I from the beginning, and we were all GREEN together!
It has been wonderful to have spent the last 18 months will all of these wonderful missionaries. We hope that they will never forget us or our love for them.
