 Five departing missionaries with assistants as bookends. We were invited to a special evening at the mission home to hear their last missionary testimonies. They all worked hard, had many converts and are returning home much stronger than they came. We spent a good deal of time with Elders Barth (red tie) and Otaniyuwa (holding the RWH plaque) as assistants. We will miss them all.

 The assistants, Elders Wolfgramm and Liufau. They work hard and love their work.

 Elder Dickson with President and Sister Roggia. All of them leave us the first of July. Elder Dickson is the oldest Seventy and goes emeritus in a few weeks. He is a very gentle, humble man with a powerful testimony and a great love of people. He has spent 21 years as a Seventy and now gets to go home.

 Elders standing in line to shake hands with Elder Dickson.

Evening arrives at the hovercraft dock.

Sister and President Roggia getting ready to depart on their last trip to Liberia. Liberia becomes its own mission on the first of July and the Roggias go home the same day.

 Now that's a grasshopper!

Sister Lauritzen was wondering if people eat these things. It looks like one would make a meal. At least you probably wouldn't want to eat another.

  1. True to her gender, I'm sure Marlene would eat a grasshopper if it was coated with chocolate.
