We are home and with our family now, what a joy it is. We have a wonderful family and they supported us throughout out mission which we cannot express enough love for them for all they did for us. We also got together with the senior missionaries that served with us, and that was a lot of fun too. They are eternal friends that we served with, and we will always have a bond between us that time cannot dissolve. LIFE IS GOOD WHEN YOU SERVE A MISSION.

LIFE IS GOOD! I hope you enjoy our blog, and will always learn to love the missoinaries as we have done these last 18 months. We are packing our bags for home this week, while training our new replacements and an in take of about 16 new missionaries, and finishing up last minute requirements. The Terry couple are great leaders and missionary leaders. We are heading to New Zealand for a week to unwind. We'll let you know how it goes.

it dropped off into some deeper water and we loved seeing 8-9 varieties of fish swimming around.

|We stayed at Wananavu one last time and enjoyed some tasty meals|
|Sister Limburg and Newsom had a one inch trail of ants on the ceiling in their office. We called the bug guy who is under contract with us, twice, before he finally came. When he moved some papers he found a real ant fest going on.|
