Saying Goodbye to the Viejitos and Hello to the Nuevitos

The final dinner is at the mission home with President and me. This is a wonderful group of missionaries we are sending home. The two latinos on the left would love to go to BYU, and their language skills are excellent. We lack the ability to help them all with their dreams, but President tells them if they want it bad enough they will find a way.
Elder Porras had two ingrown toenails that needed a little fixing before he went home. Sister Packer didn't want to do it, but with not much medical help when he got home, we thought it best to try to help him.

It's a very strong emotion to see
our younger Eduardo converted in Elder Galdo with his first companion Elder Elescano. Best wishes for both, hard work and
best harvest for our Lord and Savior Jesuschrist.
