Life in the mission is a never ending steady stream of comings and goings.

  Our most recently arrived are 2 wonderful sisters who did not get their visas renewed from Botswana, Sisters Vea and Gehring. Sister Vea is from Hauula on the north shore of Oahu and talking to her reminds me of Sharon Beaver and her daughters (they are in the same home ward). Sister Gehring used to babysit the grandchildren of our public affairs couple, the Humpherys. Small world! Then we received Elder Walusimbi who we were expecting and with him came 2 elders who did not get into Botswana, Elder Barrett and Elder Njeri.

Sister Santinho and Sister Khumalo departed the mission in Jan and Feb. Sister Khumalo left us with a special gift that she made out of paper! INSPIRING!

And finally, we get to meet  Elder and Sister Stones and their son Nate who we have been corresponding with for months to get them here with us! They will serve in Lilongwe, Malawi. This is their 3rd mission and we are so blessed to have them here with us. They got here just in time for our senior couples conference.
