Back: Elder Poll, Elder Lekias, Elder Tuipulotu, Elder Palsky, Elder Haynes, and Elder Flakemore. Front: Elder Purcell, Elder Kavaefiafi, Elder Levin and Elder Mac Tavish. All of these fine Elders have served so faithfully. We're so grateful for our association with them. We know they will all continue to give service and be great leaders in the church. Once a missionary, always a missionary. What a great group! Sister Taabua also left with this group. Her flight to Kiribati was a day earlier than everyone else. She will be missed. We love them all.
With these missionaries departing we now have 88 Elders(5 more should be here soon, they are delayed with Visa issues), 17 Sisters (1 more coming in two weeks after she finishes her English Language Classes), 26 Senior Missionaries (18 member support, office and proselyting missionaries, 6 family history missionaries and 2 CES). So currently we have 131 missionaries. We will be welcoming more senior couples soon!
