So long...farewell... or an everlasting beginning?

Good-bye, farewell, until we meet again,
see you soon, God speed, keep in touch...thank Heavens for FACEBOOK!

It has begun...the hugs, the tears, the thank yous, the farewells...
and there is more to come...
I am not sure I can sing ¨God be with you´til we meet again¨
one more time!!

In President Uctdorf´s conference talk April 2014 he said,
¨In light of what we know about our eternal destiny, is it any wonder that whenever we face the bitter endings of life, they seem unacceptable to us?  There seems to be something inside of us that resists endings.
Why is this?  Because we are made of the stuff of eternity.  We are eternal beings, children of the Almighty God, whose name is Endless and who promises eternal blessings without number.  Endings are not our destiny.
The more we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more we realize that endings here in mortality are not endings at all.  They are merely interruptions--temporary pauses that one day will seem small compared to the eternal joy awaiting the faithful.
How grateful I am to my Heavenly Father that in His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings.¨

Here is just a peek at some of our 
Everlasting beginnings
as we say our ¨until we meet agains¨
to the wonderful Saints of the Colombia Cali Mission





 Liborio and Rita Jimenez!

 This is one of  Elder Prince´s converts from 1975 - 1977 during his mission!

This is just a fraction of the pictures....everyone has been so kind.
If just perhaps we have made someones journey better...our journey will have been worth it.

Until we meet again!
