We Wish Elder and Sister Beagley Bon Voyage!

As the day ended we said goodbye to our friends and fellow missionaries Elder and Sister Beagley who faithfully served their 18 months in the Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission. Elder Beagley just could not stop finding things to do and left with a sweat stained shirt to prove he put in his all. Sister Beagley gave her all but managed to stay cool.

Mary with Sister Bare and Sister Beagley – Sister Bare now takes over the many things that sister Beagley did so well. I tried to get a good picture of them leaving the office for the last time but for some reason it is out of focus…sorry about that. But I did manage to catch a good picture of them driving out of the parking lot as they headed over to the mission home to see President and Sister Anderson. Tomorrow morning they will hitch up the trailer and head for home. We will see them again when we return home next year!

Another Lunch with Missionaries…

In the 9 days we have had four lunches with missionaries. Twice with the senior couples and twice with the young missionaries. Today we picked up and delivered the food for the lunch at the Hollywood chapel where some of the missionaries from three zones were receiving specialized training from president and sister Anderson and the APs. Since the Fort Lauderdale zone was being trained we knew many of missionaries who were there. Among the others it was good to see elder Rasmussen again – I told him we missed his smiling face.

We ate at a table with elders Kata, HoChing, Bishop and Larsen. Among the things that were talked about was how the introduction of harvesting changed mission and also how harvesting has changed as teaching methods have changed as the program has developed.
