DEPARTING INTERVIEWS- TIE ONE ON
It's that time again. We have missionaries going home. This seems to come faster and faster now and I don't like it. We love these Elders and Sisters and it is hard to see them go. We have 9 missionaries leaving this time. They came to the house on Tues, March 16 for departing interviews with Pres. Albright. When they come, we have fruits and bagels and I get to visit with the others while they are waiting. They tie their tie to the banister at this time, they mark their favorite scripture in a volume I have just for this with their name next to it and they bring me a favorite conversion story for a binder I am putting together. Elders Casey Strong and Ben Johnson had their interviews earlier and I missed getting pictures of them leaving their ties.
