Tonight, we said good-bye to six great missionaries. Sister Tsukino, Elder Kekauoha, Elder Sorensen, Elder Jackson, Elder Carr, and Elder Santin. We love them so very much and miss them a lot! They have been a great blessing to this mission!
Nozomi Tsukino's mother is a convert to the Church and served a mission. She is strong in her faith and a wonderful
example. She loves to sing and has
performed at missionary firesides. She
also love to cook. She would love to
learn English, Korean and sign language better, and even learn more
languages. She is positive and
optimistic. Most of her baby blessing
was about her serving a mission, and she has a strong testimony.|

One last picture before departure of the December Finishers!
Many members from Fukutoku Ward gathered together at the Komaki Airport to surprise Sister Tsukino and say good-bye one last time. It was very touching to see the support of these strong Japanese members!
The Elders wave good-bye as they go together to board the Shinkansen.
