NOVEMBER 2014 - and time for some to return home and some to arrive and begin their journey here in Chile.

Here is President Bluth with 5 of the greatest missionaries in the world!
Four of them have been either our Assistants or Office Elders since the day we arrived.
They have trained and guided and helped us with so much love and patience!
Two of them are going "back out into the field" before their time to return home is here.
We will love and appreciate them forever!

The first day of cambios (always a Monday) we love having the
departing missionaries come to the mission home and be with us.
They each have a private interview with the Pres., and we enjoy
a nice almuerzo together (thank you Ingrid!). Then a memorable
testimony meeting before they head for the office and their last
night here in the mission. 

Happy Hermanas enjoying a little breakfast!

Only one Elder going home this time - doing some
serious pondering:)!

Ingrid loves having them help in the kitchen
and they are always so willing!

Always a bittersweet moment - our last photograph together.  Some of the most amazing youth on the planet - such dedicated witnesses of Christ!


12 lovely Hermanas and 1 wonderful Elder - many flew all night from Mexico City to get here.
Nervous, excited, dedicated, fantastic!

There was one more great Elder who drove in from closer by.  Here are the two new ones (in the middle) with their
companion/trainers.  Let the mission begin!

And here go some of the new hermanas with their luggage and trainers - off to the bus station and their first sector!

On November 18 we were delighted to welcome Terry and Lynda Lee to our mission!
This picture was taken in Provo while they were in the MTC, right before they came.
From winter to summer!!
We have known and loved the Lee's for many, many years and are so grateful for their
decision to come and serve.  They are already a great blessing to all of us!

AND - they brought a suitcase full of goodies that our daughter, Chelsea, packed up for us - including brown sugar and chocolate chips - hard/impossible items to find down here!
SOOOO - time to bake chocolate chip cookies for the missionaries - interviews are right around the corner:):)
