Final Goodbyes

We said goodbye to three missionaries this week: Elders Cox and Jones, and Sister Call.

We decided to have a going away lunch together at a local Indian Restaurant:

I guess they liked the food!

At our last District Meeting each set of missionaries was asked to come to the front and tell something they have learned from their companion. Then they were ‘asked’ to give their companion a hug!

There was also time given at the end of the lesson for missionaries to share their testimonies of the Gospel.

    Thank you so much for watching over the missionaries in St. Maarten, especially one Elder Jones. We have enjoyed the pictures of events, and gatherings. We will surely miss your photography and your updates on your blog. You have kept us informed about every detail that has taken place, since Elder Jones arrived in St. Maarten. We are so very thankful for all you have done

    Evan and Cheryl Jones
