Highlights: President Johnson sang his mission song, from when in served in the Northwestern States Mission. I know he spent time in Twin Falls, but am not sure of the mission boundaries. He also told the elders that their mothers would want to hold their hands all the way home, and rub her hands all over their faces, and they were not to stop and go to the bathroom when they departed the plane; they were to go directly to their mother and for two days just sit by her and talk to her. Aaahhhh. He is extremely funny.
Each missionary bore his testimony, and at the request of President Johnson, told at least one experience that meant a lot to them on their mission. The most common thing we heard was how amazing it was to see people's lives change so dramatically.
Elder Rowley - wonderful missionary,
talked about how a good life is a life of sacrifice.
Elder Guymon and Elder Smuin
We were in the same ward with Elder Guymon.
Elder Smuin is deaf, and looks like he had ear implants,
could speak, sign, read lips and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
One happy, energetic missionary.
I never saw him without a smile.

All the departing with President and Sister Johnson. Also,
Elder and Sister Bauerle were Record Preservation missionaries,
going home in July. She told us that day,
they digitized 4,000 plus records.
