So, our warm goodbyes to:
|Seated from left: Elder Amussen, Elder Kishi, and Elder Kusume|
Standing: President Baird, Sister Baird, Sister Nishimuro
Elder Kishi has a talent for singing, cutting paper into wonderful animals and shapes,
juggling and card tricks. He is cheerful and positive and makes friends with everyone.
Children especially love it when he is around. He is a hard worker and has a strong testimony.
|Elder Kaneko and Elder Kishi--|

|Elder Kusume at Cherry Blossom Time.|
Elder Kusume is very open with everyone. He is a hard worker and
can easily gain the trust of people. He is very easy to get along with, according to
one elder who knows him well. He is also a good cook.
Elder Cameron Amussen
|Elder Amussen, on left, looks solemn, but he's just wishing they'd|
quit taking pictures so he could dig into that great lasagna.
Also, Sister Nishimuro, Elder Kishi, Elder Kusume
|Elder Amussen on left, with Elder Dunn|
They have just told this sister about the Book of Mormon
and she has invited them to dinner.

|You've just got to read this book, Pikachu. |
You will be forever changed by it.
|From left, Sister Katsuta, Sister Silva, Sister and President Baird, Elder Shimbashi, and Elder Waddell|
|Of course, we can't leave the airport without the Hoiza shout.|
|Next morning in the mission home: writing something|
for Sister Baird's special book.
|Elder Ellsworth at the piano, and Elder Clark on the cello.|
We get to enjoy wonderful music whenever possible.
Elder Dee Waddell
Elder Dunn could become an author, filmmaker, English teacher or TV broadcaster. He is
energetic and enjoys being humorous.
Sister Yoko Katsuta

with others. Like that, she wants to share the Gospel. She loves the Book of Mormon
and gets power from it. She wants to pray hard, feel the spirit, and work with her companion willingly.
Elder Ashton Shimbashi
|On left is Elder Shimbashi, and Elder Sarager is his trainer.|
They will be working in Kariya.
Elder Sarager is great with building relationships with members. Someone said of him, "He's the nicest guy you'll ever meet." He has a great heart and understands his purpose as a missionary. On top of that, he's an incredible volleyball player.
Sister Fabiana Silva
|Sister Silva, left, and Sister Rogers.|
They will be the first sisters in Yokkaichi.
Sister Rogers is easy going, gets excited over little things, and is happy and high on life. She has had a deep love for the gospel all her life. And it is a highlight whenever we get to hear her play violin. She inspires us with her music.
|What a beautiful group, united in a most important work!|
