On Sunday my mom and dad gave their farewell talks at church. Their six children that live nearby and their 15 grandkids came to hear to the talks. My mom spoke about the Book of Mormon and my Dad spoke about the restoration of the gospel. It was sweet to hear their testimonies and how much they wanted to share the teachings of our church with others. After church we all congregated at their house for lunch. It was a beautiful day so we ate in the backyard. These three girls ate on the swing.
The next day my Mom's good friend Nan hosted a luncheon with salads and rolls for the ladies in the ward and my mom's quilt group friends. Nan put these cute Kentucky flags on the fruit tray.
And she made this nice banner which hung on her porch.
This is the group of ladies sitting inside.
Last night some of the family joined my parents at their house where they were given a special Priesthood blessing to set them apart as full time missionaries by the Stake President of our church. It was a touching experience. We each gave my parents some advice and then they shared their beliefs about our church with us. I posed for one last picture with my parents.
