Following our walking tour, and a lovely dinner at the mission home (where the sisters gathered in the kitchen, putting the food together, and the brothers gathered in the living room, discussing mission business), we shared testimonies. I was touched as each one stood and spoke of the joy and satisfaction they have serving together as couples. One couple arrived on Tuesday, to serve in Lithuania. One couple will leave after 23 months, the first part of August. One couple, also serving 23 months, will leave the middle of November, and our office couple leaves the middle of December.
It's different to serve with your eternal companion.
