DEPARTING DEVOTIONAL (Sunday, March 2, 2014)

Sunday's Departing Devotional filled the chapel, and members came to honor and say good-bye to the missionaries who had served so faithfully in their wards.  The Elders and Sisters who were leaving the California Redlands Mission each had the opportunity to share their thoughts on how they had felt the Savior had been aware of them as they served.  A beautiful piano duet was shared by Kristin and Hannah Richie.  President and Sister Van Cott expressed their love for the missionaries as they prepared to return home.  After the meeting in the chapel, there were lots of hugs and handshakes and tears as we said goodbye to missionaries who touched each of our lives.  Refreshments were provided for all by the senior missionaries serving in the mission.
