We enjoyed a Family Home Evening with some of their beautiful family as part of the send off. That was a delight. Mission couples who are out in the field are the best thing that can happen in a mission. And the Matsuhashi's were THE best. Here are a few pictures to prove it.
|Elder and Sister Matsuhashi taught dance at the church. |
People loved to come, to learn to dance and to get to know each other.
They also attended choir practice every week and brought many potential
investigators with them.
|Elder and Sister Matsuhashi became dear friends with many people. One elder who knows them|
well said that Sister Matsuhashi has a really fun personality, makes delightful jokes and makes friends
easily. He said Elder Matsuhashi has a dry sense of humor, and is a superb Gospel teacher.
|A great game at a fun church activity. How many toothpicks|
can you get to stay on the bottle?
And finally, just 10 days later, it was time for the Barney's to return home. Elder and Sister Barney have served as the
mission finance secretary and the mission secretary. They have loved being in Japan and working with President and Sister Baird, and they were very sad to leave. Nagoya will always hold a special place in their hearts.

This is sweet Yoko Yamamoto, who they love and hope will some day join the Church.
