Saying Good-bye

We love getting to know and working so close with our missionaries. Which makes it hard every 6 weeks when we need to say goodbye again. We have had the opportunity to get to know Elder Haslam from Hurricane Utah. The Friday before he left we took him and his companion to lunch at the Cape Coast Castle Restaurant. Elder Saunders complemented his companion, Elder Adijefio on his "good looking tie". Instead of the usual "thanks", Elder Adijefio offered to give it to him, which Elder Saunders declined. After we dropped off the Elders I noticed something was left behind in the back seat.

On Saturday, we attended Elder Haslam's last baptism. Elder Saunders wore his new tie!

There is a special bond between Elder Saunders and Elder Haslam. We said our final good-bye to him at the Accra Temple after attending a session with the departing missionaries. It is a privilege to get to know and love so many amazing young men and women serving in the Ghana Cape Coast Mission!
