Saying Goodbye.............again.

Sister Salaiau & Elder Haas

A lot of the Sapwalap Branch came out to say Goodbye

Elder Stewart, off to Guam to be a Zone Leader, sure hope we get him back.

Awalt, Sis, Kennach, Lavon, she is not hugging back, a true
missionary to the end.

Elder Carlson, going home to Alaska

Sis. Kennach, home to Washington

Elder Haas, home to Logan, Utah

Goodbyes are hard

Sister Redes

Elder Cook, Elder Bourne, Elder Stewart

Goodbyes are hard, one last hug for a fellow missionary

One last look at the people you have come to love so much.

One last glimpse

A Final wave

More tears

The last glance

And their gone, leaving behind future missionaries
       They went Forward with Faith, They Served with Valor, and now they Return with Honor.  3 more of our missionaries are returning home to their families.  It is always hard to see them go. These 3 were no different, it was hard to see them leave the Island, especially knowing they will probably never come back. I think people from every Branch showed up to send them off. There were not very many dry eyes as we all said our goodbyes, especially the members who have lived with and worked so closely with these amazing missionaries. Elder Carlson, Elder Haas, & Sister Kennach, Farewell for now, and God be with you til we meet again.
      A farewell for now to Elder Stewart, he is off to Guam to be a Zone leader, we hope to get him back before he goes home in January.
