Josh’s brother, Eli, just finished his LDS mission and came home last night. It was a great evening and it was great seeing Eli again. We all gathered at the airport to greet Eli and his Dad, who went to pick him up around 9:45 p.m. It was sweet and emotional seeing the reunion. We’re so happy for him. Here are some of the pictures that were taken.
I love the missionaries and the missionary work! I’m grateful for men and women put their lives on hold to serve the Lord and also those who continue to serve the Lord when they come home. I love this quote by Elder Kazuhiko Yamashita, “I am thankful that missionaries are called by the Lord, that they respond to that call, and that they are serving throughout the world. Let me say to all of you beloved returned missionaries: I am truly thankful for all your efforts. You are a treasure of this Church. And may you always continue to be missionaries and act like disciples of Christ.”
