We drove the Elders to church today. We laughed about how they would now be on their own. They will be moving into our apartment.
It was sad to be leaving the ward. I don't think we did that much because of our other assignments, but many members, especially Bishop Leedom, thanked us for our contributions and positive influence. One brother thanked me for being me. He said he had learned much from me and my example.
When we did apartment inspections, Renee would leave a little treat for the missionaries, usually a roll of Life Savers. She would leave a note thanking them for saving lives. We had some Life Savers left over, so she gave each of the missionaries in the University Park and Sarasota Wards a roll. They obviously liked them, though we had to explain to newly arrived Sister Chavez from Mexico what they are.
I packed some boxes in our car during the afternoon. Then in the evening we attended a baptism in the Cortez Branch -- the brother whom I had interviewed on Friday. He asked if we would come to his baptism, so I thought we should try. It was a good way to end our mission.
