Now for departures and reunions!  Here they are:
Back row: Elders Kirkham, Hunt and Manning. Front row:  Hnas Vasquez and Torres, Elders Walton, Rodriguez, Hafen and Barahona. 
Ok so Elder Barahona is still here, but since he finishes mid-transfer, he came for the festivities with the group.  We miss you Elders and Sisters! 
Elder Hunt's parents came to pick him up and take him back to Virginia

Elder Hafen with his parents


Elder Manning with his whole family and ours.  And don't worry--he's got his arms around his Mom and sister.  Completely allowed!

Elder Walton's parents. 
Parents, family and friends back home, we are thrilled to have your sons and daughters here.  Know that we love them already.  And just like this mother monkey adoring and caring for her child, we will be here for your new missionary sons and daughters.  Likewise, we will dearly miss those who have gone home to their families.  We entrust them back to your care!
