Jacob and all the Kalio's came to our apartment at 10:30 to pick up Jacob's suit and suitcase, and so Jacob could change. Our apartment was full, I think half of the Sapwalap Branch came to help Jacob.
then off to the airport to get checked in and meet up with Sam. It finally hit me, we will not see any of these amazing young men and women come home in 2 years, in fact, Sis Chandler was having me show her the ropes for explaining to Jacob all about flying, and what he would need to do at each airport along the way. As we worked together, she ask me, now who will we need to get off first after you leave, and I started to cry, I realized we would not be the one's to get Kenio, Mary, Tasha, Jason, or any of the others off that are now either waiting to leave, or we are working on papers with. But we will be home to meet them on the other end, what a blessing that will be.
So as these next 8 leave, we will show the Chandlers the ropes, and as we finish paperwork with the one's we are working with now, we will help Chandlers to know what to do, and then we will give them a list of all the Young Adults who will be able to get papers in in the spring and we will turn it over to the Chandlers. They will do a great job, and what a blessing for the young adults to get to work with them. They are a gift to the Island. We are grateful everyday for them leaving their family and coming out here to serve the Lord. They are great workers and have great testimonies.
So 2 more have now left to be in the service of God. May the Lord bless and keep them and return them safely in home in 2 years to their families.
