Today we said goodbye to 15 missionaries from 4 countries. Two left this morning for Argentina and Uruguay. The rest left this afternoon after a lunch with us in the mission home. We have grown to love each of them so much. We will miss them terribly and look forward to hearing of their life adventures in the future.

Smith, Cruz, Oliveira, Borges, Serrano, Bruce Fernandes, Joas Oliveira, Diamond, Brooksby, and Miranda.

|Sister Cordon is sad to see these two dear Sisters, Miranda da Silva and Barbosa da Silva, leave. They have fulfilled their calling and their families are anxious for their arrival.|
