Saying Goodbye

Today is Wednesday, June 29, 2016
This morning, we watched as President and Sister Marler got ready to go home from their 3 year Mission President mission.  They have been wonderful!  We've watched them as they've bee parents to everyone of their missionaries.  They've trained them to be great missionaries, to love the temple, to have confidence in themselves, to love and be loved, and they've served with honor. 

Jim and Patti extended their mission of a year to 18 months because Jim was asked to serve in the mission presidency, which they did a great job of.  They served the members in Chocope and Casa Grande area as they brought many to the temple to receive the blessings of the temple.  They too have loved the missionaries and served with great honor.   

Bringing in a bag to pack.

The following pictures are of the crowd saying goodbye to President and Sister Marler and President and Sister Fackrell here at the temple. There were a lot of hugs and some tears.

The final goodbye.

The day did finally come for these two wonderful couples to return with honor from their service here in Trujillo Peru.

President and Sister Marler were the best at their service to 618 missionaries as they loved, taught, and watched over them. They touched the lives of many.  They were good to me and Wayne and we appreciate them being here.  They are great friends.

Our friends Jim and Patti Fackrell have been amazing!  They came to Trujillo to pick up their son from his mission and came back to serve a mission of their own for 12 months while their daughter served her mission in Latvia. They extended their mission because Jim was called the be a counselor to President Marler. Instead of going home in January, they extended their mission for 5 months, going home the end of June with President and Sister Marler.   They brought many people to the temple and helped many families to be sealed together forever. We saw the love they have for the members they have been serving.  They have blessed the lives of many, including us. We always had fun when we were were with them.

Trujillo Peru is a better place because of the Marler's and the Fackrell's service!   We are so blessed to be serving here, and to have been able to serve with Jim and Patti Fackrell and Kurt and Kathy Marler.

God Be With You Til We Meet Again!
