This wonderful group of missionaries went home on February 3, 2010. It was of course a bittersweet experience. Sweet because "unto such a one as this (these) shall it be given to bring thousands into the kingdom of God." The end of their work is not yet in sight, but how wonderful to hear again of their many experiences, miracles and places served as we drove home from the St. Paul temple after an endowment session and before their departure. How powerful was the spirit --- the confirmation of a job well done for these marvelous servants of the Lord. Just as our Savior turned water into wine, he has worked his work, his miracles through this wonderful group of missionaries, as with those who have gone home in the past!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to these missionaries, our beloved friends in the gospel, to their families and especially to our Heavenly Father for such experiences! HURRAH for ISRAEL!
