All missions have a starting point and an ending, and this day is the last for Hermana Briggs from Boise, Idaho. What a beautiful, solid, hard working daughter of God. We have been so impressed by her and know that her future is bright. How could you resist her smile when being approached about the gospel. The first trip around the mission meeting the elders and hermanas she welcomed us with open arms. What an example.
After her exit interview and all the paper work given out, it was off to the mission home for a dinner and a sharing of testimonies. What a sweet night listening to her experiences and what she has learned from being a full-time servant of her Heavenly Father. The light of the gospel is so radiant in her countenance.
Bright and early the next morning it is off to the airport to check in for her long day. We figured at the time of this picture it was exactly 24 hours before she would be landing in Boise. Starting in Bilbao, going to Madrid, New York, Salt Lake and then Boise, whew!!
A wave good-bye filled with tears of sadness and joy at the same time. Sad to see the end of her service, so full of joy for a reunion with her family at home. Vaya con Dios!
