This is our Sweet Elder Whitehead.
He is leaving a week early to get home
for his sister's wedding.
So we took the Assistants and the
Traveling Assistants to
dinner with Elder Whitehead tonight.
The traveling Assistants just got in from Casma today
and tomorrow morning they head to Casa Grande.
They are doing great things.
We had to stop by the Plaza de Armas on the way home
so that Elder Whitehead could see it lit up
one last time.
He has been an excellent missionary.
I have a feeling that
he will miss the mission and the mission will miss him.
His mission will have a lifetime effect on him.
There are things that you learn on a mission
that you can learn no where else.
"I believe there is nothing in all the world that can compare
with the joy that a man feels
when he realizes that he has been the instrument
in the hands of the living God
of reaching some honest heart, inspiring in it a love of God
and the desire to serve Him."
President Heber J. Grant
It has been our privilege to serve along side of you, Elder Whitehead.
We wish you the best of everything in your life.
We love you and will miss you..
