Finishing Touches

 I guess I have been around construction too much...

Sunday was our last day in church.  A sort of "right of passage" for members of the Church is that they get asked to speak at our Sacrament meeting whenever they move in or move out of the area.  Angela would have been perfectly happy to fade into the sunset, but I wanted the "true" going home experience so I volunteered us to speak.  My sweet companion did a great job and I did okay.  It's hard for us to say goodbye to people we have come to love.  It's hard to know that this will probably be the last time in this life that we will see them.  There were some tears, lots of pictures with families and kids and multiple requests for us to come to dinner, which we politely declined (many times).  The Indian members are so gracious and humble.  Many of their homes are the size of an average bedroom.  They are dedicated to their families, and they love the missionaries.  I put a few pictures below.
