Each and everyone is special and unique. It is an epic day for those that are starting their first day and for those experiencing their last day on mission.
However, there are many Elders that are in the middle. Each and every Elder finds that the 6 week transfer is a mile marker to measure their mission by.
We love this day and enjoy the opportunity to pause and really welcome new Elders to the SAJM and honor those leaving. The pictures below are an attempt to capture all the relationships and memories that are happening throughout the mission.
I believe we often are noticing the word taking "root" in them. As stated in Alma 32:43 "Because of your diligence and faith and your patience with nourishing the word... it may take root in you..and you shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet.....and ye shall feast and hunger not."
