Mission Circle of Life - November

We had 9 Elders go home this month. President interviews each one of them and then we come to the Mission home and have a nice dinner, Fireside and watch a video of pictures from their mission.  We end each of these evenings with "Para siempre Dios esté con Vos" - "Until We Meet Again".  I love hearing this song with all the Elders deep voices and everyone is gathered around the piano, arms around each other and feeling it.  It is a wonderful, culmination of all of their service.  The next morning, we go to the airport and send them up the escalator and turn around and walk to the baggage claim doors.  This month we received 17 new/fresh missionaries from the CCM in Mexico City and 1 Elder from Argentina, who had gone to the Chile CCM.  So a total of 18 new missionaries!
