New Missionaries Come, Oldies Leave

Monday started with surprising the Burnetts at the airport with their daughter, Hermana Burnett who is one of the oldies going home. She and Hermana Deem her companion were jumping up and down like young girls while they waited.
Monday nights dinner and testimony meeting was very special. The spirit was very strong and we knew that in this room were some very special spirits ready to go out and conqueror the world. Minus Elder Conti (zone leader) sitting next to President, the front row are all ex-Assistants to President. Elder Smith, Medina, Wajchman, Morera.

Those were the days. I actually served in Paraguay, but my dad lived in Mendoza while his father was building chapels there and in Godoy Cruz. My sister wants to arrange a trip for his 60th bithday. If anyone can help, my email is
