|This was at my son's missionary homecoming in December a few years back. He is the one on the left, with arms around all his former companions who came to hear him speak. I love all of these boys. They were a Band of Brothers.|
|I Want to Be a Missionary Now!|
|Some of the many missionaries we housed for a year and a half in our home. The one holding our dog is Sister N. from Tonga. I could never really say her name all that well. (Neutupuivaha)|
|We had many sisters and about 6 elders over the time we housed them. It was always fun, exciting with news of the work, and meaningful to me and my hubs.|
|Devin with the missionaries|
Many months later I was able to host a mission reunion at my house. 70 kids from all over came and packed into our home to hear their former mission president. There is really nothing like it on God's green earth. The spirit just oozes everywhere. Love is pouring out of everybody. I loved sitting and being a fly on the wall.

So..... Sing about missionaries, honor those missionaries of your wards. Keep the goal bright and shiny in the minds of Primary kids you have influence over. It changes lives all over the world, this thing we call being a missionary for the Lord. I'm a convert. I had 2 missionaries I love and remember too. Elder Whitchurch and Elder Thigpen. Wherever you are, thanks for everything. I hope I can be just like you when I grow up. :D
