Food, Testimonies, and Ties

In addition to visiting the American Memorial Cemetery in Manila, we spent the rest of the day eating, visiting, sharing great missionary experiences, and carrying on the Tye's tie tradition!  President and Sister Tye invited each departing missionary to leave an autographed tie which they hung on the Mission Home banister.  Before the Tye's went home, Sister Tye had a beautiful quilt made from the small end of the ties.  It was too great of a tradition to let die, so it must continue.  

I have fallen in love with all 14 of these missionaries.  Our thoughts and prayers will accompany them on their journey home and throughout the coming years.  May God Bless!

We both thought it was a good trade!
