It is always mixed feelings when great missionaries leave the Mission; the epitome of a "bittersweet" moment. They have contributed much to the Lord's work, but we are happy to see them move onto their next step of life. We wish them the very best in their future endeavors and in all that The Lord guides them to do.
These three sisters have done amazing work and they will surely be remembered. Sister Nkosi has returned to her family in South Africa, Sister Tuai to Utah and
Sister Zohner to Idaho.
The Pig roast has become a Mission Culture
Due to the great success of the previous departing dinner, we decided to have another "pig night" with our most recent departing missionaries. Although it takes a few hours to roast it, it was well worth the time. The missionaries all had great things to say about this wonderful meal. President Kupu and Junior Kupu took the job of roasting it, and President Kupu was the one who cut and served it.
A big thank you to Sister Kupu, who oversaw the whole dinner organization and preparation. She even prepared a traditional Tongan drink, called otai. It is basically a watermelon drink, with some added sugar to make it sweet.
And finally they made it to the airport. It was a little hard to let them go, but we are grateful for their smiles and energy all the way unto the end of their Missions.
Safe travels home!
