More missionaries go home

These missionary good-byes are always bittersweet. We have grown to love them and we have to say good-bye to them for now. They also have conflicting feelings. They have loved being a missionary and have a very difficult time leaving these people they have come to love so much.
 The picture above is Elder Peterson from Port Orchard, WA. He has promised to come see us on his
way to California.
Sister Pahulu is going home to Tonga. She is leaving behind many converts and members who will
miss her beautiful smile.

 Elder Bunn has been a great missionary, also. This is his companion, Elder Bunn from England. I promised to make them a meal before they left. Elder Bourne wanted Elder Bunn to know what real English food was like, so he asked me if I knew how to make Yorkshire Pudding and English scones.
I was "up for the challenge" and he told me, after tasting them, that  it made him miss home. It is always fun to make some kind of food they wish they could taste for just a moment or two.
