Departing Missionaries

It was cold today.  The high temperature was in the mid-60s.  The overnight low in some places was in the low-40s.

We didn't have any particular assignments during the day, and since it was our P-Day, we drove to a local park, Lettuce Lake Park.  The park is close to the Fairfield Inn and the mission office.  They have constructed some boardwalks along the Hillsborough River which provides viewing of wildlife and the swamps.  We saw one small alligator and lots of wading birds.  There probably wasn't as much wildlife around because of the low temperature.

We then went to the mission home for the dinner for the three departing missionaries, Sister Takaki (from Brazil), and Elders Ronfeldt and Hedin.  We have worked with all three, so it is sad to see them leave.  But they are starting another exciting chapter in their lives.

Elder Ronfeldt was in a tripanionship for the last few weeks.  He and his companions decided to finish his mission with a flourish.  They taught 76 lessons in his last week.  Many missionaries are struggling to meet the mission standard of 20 lessons in a week.
