A Fond Farewell and Warm Hello!

We said goodbye last night to Elder and Sister Toone and hello to Elder and Sister Halversen who are taking their place here in Hong Kong. It was a sweet occasion to be gathered together with friends who wanted to express love and appreciation for the good work that these couples have done and will be doing. It is good to be reminded that we belong to a wonderful community of saints who are willing to give of their time, their talents and their means--not to mention leaving their families to help build the church anywhere in the world that they are called. It is a privilege to witness the miracle that are Senior couples!

This is Elder and Sister Toone...they are flying home on Monday!

Say hello to Elder and Sister Halversen from California! They are thrilled to be here!

Of course, you must check out the table setting!

Here's a closeup of the individual place setting!Here we are (minus dad who is taking the photo) all gathered together, ready to have a fabulous meal....What was on the menu you ask? Cranberry Chicken and a lovely sauce...Festive Fried Rice....corn...spinach salad and rolls. For dessert we had apple crisp and ice cream!

Does it make you hungry?

Don't you wish you were all here? I DO!
