Beautiful testimonies were given tonight by the 16 leaving missionaries. They are truly returning home as more humble and spiritual adults. What an honor it has been for President and I to learn from them these past 18 months - 2 years. We will miss them!

One of our RM's came back to visit the Philippines. This is Sister Peters and her family. They joined us at the Departure Fireside. It was soooo good to see her again!
A wonderful evening!
