Good friends never say good bye, they simply say "see you soon"

After serving for 23 months as full time missionaries in the Florida Orlando Mission it is...





Forgive us, but it is still much too difficult to express our tender feelings at this time so we will just let the pictures take us on a trip down memory lane.
Elder Delgado and Elder Chatterton and Sister Gruber and Sister Webb currently assigned to the Valencia area agreed to meet us at the Dean building Sunday night for a final farewell.  Both Elder Delgado and Sister Gruber will be departing in March.
 Elder Bagshaw assigned to Hunter's Creek stopped by to wish us well.
 Sister Norris and Sister Fricke assigned to the Pleasant Hill Ward.
Sister Norris surprised us with a beautiful picture her grandfather painted of the
Orlando Temple.
Sisters Lamy and Potter, currently assigned to the Hunter's Creek Ward.
The Chipotle's on Orange Blossom Trail that we have been anxiously waiting to open did so on Monday, February 2, 2015-just in the nick of time!
Elder Busath was actually their second customer :)

"I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good."



Next stop Tallahassee, Florida
