Note: I didn't have access to update the blog, so I sent this post out as an e-mail in October, but it is dated November when I added it to the blog.
We had many final shining moments in Dartmouth. Here are a few photos, but there are still people and events we missed.
|The gloves that match our socks that match our Hudson Bay Point Blanket, generous gifts from President & Sister Leavitt at our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner/farewell at the mission home.|
|A demonstration of the pink iPad in action with the MPW.|
|Some of the wonderful metro missionaries who came to the open house at the office on our last Monday--the real Canadian Thanksgiving. Love them all so much!|
|JJ Choo, my friend and hair stylist, on our last Sunday in Dartmouth by the Halifax Temple.|
|Big night out at McDonald's with Brandy Eele and her cute kids that we are going to miss so much.|
|Delly & Linda Trembley, some of the first members we met here who cooked us a wonderful farewell dinner and made beautiful gifts to remember them by.|
|Aubrey & Thelma Fielden stopped by the office to bring her famous salsa and a recipe for he strawberry jam. How we hope to someday be anything that resembles these two wonderful Canadian pioneers.|
|Terrible picture of a wonderful evening with a delicious Italian dinner and more lovingly-made gifts for us. These are two more of the stalwart pioneers in Dartmouth.|
|Elders Steimle and Watson and Sister Brown, the office missionaries as we were leaving.|
|Selfie with our beloved Sisters Turner & Howell...on the iPad of course.|
|Final view of the mission home. So many wonderful memories with the Leavitts and all the other missionaries here.|
|The President's Assistants, Elders Torrie & Jason, who assist with just about everything in the mission.|
In short, it would be very hard to IMPROVE THE SHINING MOMENTS in our last bittersweet days in Dartmouth.
