We're baaack….


 After 17 hours in the air and 8 plus hours worth of layovers, we arrived back in Liberia on February 15th.  Our 4 large, very heavy suitcases, however, did not arrived till 
February 18th!! 
 Long story - let's just say we felt very blessed to finally have everything arrive safely.

Here I am hugging our 'found' suitcases.  I even did a 'Happy Dance' for the airport luggage guys, which they really enjoyed!!


The Monday before we came back to Liberia, we had the chance to meet with several of 'our' missionaries' parents.  It was easy to tell why these missionaries are so great!!

Front row - Elder and Sister Berrett and Lindsay Pearmain
Middle two - Brother and Sister Witehira, Sister Zaugg, Sister Price, 
Sister and Brother Pearmain
Back row of dads - Brother Conners, Brother Zaugg, Brother Price

We got back in time to do apartment inspections.  Just had to share this picture of the cleanest missionary kitchen we've ever seen and the missionaries who made it happen.
This is the Banjor apartment -
Elders Cottrell, Bowring, Osanebi and Morrison

They'd even put up hooks to hang their pots from.  We were very impressed.  In fact, their whole apartment looked great.  Nice work Elders! 


We are so grateful for how well things worked out while we were home and that we were able to return to finish our mission after only 1 month.  My cheek is healing nicely and I only had to have 1/2 of my thyroid removed.  Right now, that half if working perfectly, so I do not have to be on any medication.  A real blessing.  Thanks to everyone for your faith and prayers. 


  1. So glad you and your luggage are back safely.

  2. I love you Mom and Dad and I am so grateful you are safely back in Liberia. I know that is where you want to be at this time. I am also so grateful that you are healthy and that everything turned out so well, we are blessed! You look darling in your pink outfit, good choice Mom.

  3. Glad all is well, you guys look great.

  4. I have the best parents. ❤️
