I'll Be Home For Christmas!

Elders Kear, Marr, Evanson, Bergeson and
Sisters Williams & Pehrson!
As the time for transfers drew nigh, President Beck decided that he would send the December departing missionaries home for Christmas, rather than wait until 2 days after. This was not a very popular decision with the missionaries as they wanted to have one more Christmas in the mission. They had grown to love their investigators and those they served and weren't so sure they wanted to leave them. I know that a lot of families were appreciating the early arrival of their missionary though.

Each missionary looks forward to Presidente Lopez's carne asada dinner.

Departing missionaries surround the heater as President & Sister Beck prepare
them for what is to come when the go back home. This includes the "M" talk!

When the Elders go home they sign a tie for me. Someday I will make a skirt out of
the ties from the missionaries as a reminder of each of them.

A time for reminiscing the past 2 years of service as the look at the albums of pictures.

A little pingpong match before bedtime

Elder Bergeson & Elder Evansen decided to spend an hour after testimony meeting to go out with the Assistants to go for their last tracting experience. What a way to end your mission Elders!
