Last day ... 6/29/17

Wednesday we brought in a Nothing Bundt cake to share with the office and the Hardys.  We sat and visited for a little.
We stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn Wednesday and Thursday nights.  We still read the Book of Mormon.  We walked through the golf course both mornings.  Thursday morning was stressful as President was talking while we were walking with his IFR determining if a missionary was going to be transferred to another mission or going home.  We had things we had to do at the office before driving to Santa Barbara to pick up the Nakkens.  We said our goodbyes to the Iversons.  
As we waited for the Nakkens' flight, a woman came up to us and introduced herself as a not active member.  We had a nice visit and invited her to read the Book of Mormon; 3 Nephi 11.  We almost missed the Nakkens as they arrived from the outside rather than coming down the stairs.  We gave them hugs and welcomed them.
President Felix drove the van with President Nakken in the front seat and the wives in the back.  We had a wonderful lunch at Padara Grill and gave them a taste of California and seeing the ocean.  
We knew the Jones' were bringing dinner to them at 6:00.  We were still there but starting to leave.  It was emotional for me as we walked out the door.

We arranged to go to dinner with the Andruses and met them at Ihop for our "last" dinner in the mission.  I requested Ihop because I needed comfort food.  It was great being with them.  It has been absolutely wonderful having the Andruses in the mission.  We love them and it's been fun being together.
We had to get to Target before it closed to get help with cleaning out the mission phone.  
The assistants met the Nakkens at the mission home at 7:00.  When we were done at Target we texted the assistants to see if they were anywhere close to the office.  They met us there so we could get in to leave the phone.
