The departing fireside is after the temple and dinner. We head to the chapel again and the missionaries give their last testimonies to their friends and investigators, and converts, and members they have come to love and who love them. It is fun to watch them as they gather and give hugs and express such love for their service and what they have meant to them. This always surprises me, because we always have a big turnout. These wonderful NorthernVirginians love their missionaries.
