Week Fifty-Nine

We started out our week by going to dinner at the Sunset Bay Restaurant.  We love the food and the beautiful sunsets.  I wish my camera could pick up the reds, but it just doesn't!

Tuesday we said good-bye to some really special missionaries.  Sister Lagrimas was the only missionary left from our first area in Manaoag.  We will always have a special place in our hearts for her.  Unfortunately, two of the other missionaries who left Tuesday are still stuck in Manila and unable to go home because Immigration is holding their passports.  We're not sure what that's all about, but hopefully they can go home soon to their families in Canada and England.
New missionaries arrived Wednesday.  If their moms wrote me, I try to get pictures of them.  Sorry, but that's the way it works!
