YOU LOSE SOME AND YOU WIN SOME! Feb 17th we lost 13 and won 10! It was a big day for us - truly tears of joy all the way around. Even though we are sad to see great missionaries depart there is a great sense of satisfaction that we helped them complete an honorable mission. We return them to their parents and families and wards and branches with high hopes they will continue to be their best and do great things with their lives. Each of these 13 departed missionaries have touched our lives in unique ways which shall always be treasured. They each know the special place they have held in our hearts and we say thank you to them for serving faithfully and finishing strong. 10 WONDERFUL NEW MISSIONARIES replaced the energy loss and filled the gap with near perfection!

 Sister Nxele homeward bound to Port Elizabeth SA, Sister Ruth to Nairobi Kenya
 Elder Moya home to Dar es Salaam Tanzania
 Sister Jones home to Kaysville Utah
 Elder Jorgensen home to Sparks Nevada
 Elder Van Arsdale home to Bountiful Utah
 Elder Hunter home to Idaho Falls Idaho
 Elder Barnard home to Oakley Idaho (and the ranch!)
 Sister Scott home to Little Rock Arkansas
 Sister Lyon home to Morgan Utah
 Elder Johnson home to Magna Utah
 Elder Chathyoka home to Lilongwe, Malawi
 Elder Blanchard home to Idaho

Out with the old and in with the NEW! Its so nice to receive new missionaries the same day as those who depart to replace the energy loss! And this group brought a lot of wonderful energy and excitement for missionary work!
