Goodbyes are hard, especially when you don't know when you will see the people you love so much again. But, we are determined to save our money and come back to visit in about 4 to 5 years, when all we missionaries that left while we were here are back. It will be good to give a hug to all the people we love again.
The Nett branch prepared 2 special songs for us that they sang at the airport, and then just as we were going through the doors to security, everyone sang "God be with you til we meet again". I think there were about 200 people their to say goodbye. It was hard. We love all these amazing people. We will be back one day.
Pictures of some of the faces we love so much, we could not put all the pictures on
the blog, so here are just a few

|Sweet Karen Simon, our contact at the College of Micronesia,|
she made it possible for us to have Institute classes on both
the National Campus and the Pohnpei Campus. It truly
was a miracle.

Then the plane passed over the Island because of storms, so we all hung around until Midnight, when United sent a rescue plane. After 40 + hours in the air and on the ground we are finally home. What a sweet reunion.
