Our DR Congo Kinshasa Mission has come to an end.

Elder and Sister Moon leaving to be released from their Stake President. We will miss our badges! We are grateful for the experiences we had in the DR Congo Kinshasa Mission. We will always cherish the wonderful people we had the privilege of associating with. The experiences we had for the twenty and a half months we served will be forever deeply rooted in our hearts. The Lord blessed us so abundantly with tender mercies each day! How can we ever fully express to Him our extreme gratitude?

David made sure the world knew we were arriving home!

One picture that never got posted was this treasured picture taken with Elder Holland, Elder Koelliker and his wife, President and Sister Headlee and Eustache. We were privileged to spend several days with them when they came to split a stake in Kinshasa. What a blessing to spend time with an apostle and a member of the Seventy!

Sister Moon with her mother, Ruth Challis the day we arrived home. We are grateful our parents were so supportive!
Elder Moon's parents, Grant and Ella Moon on the day we arrived home. Mom Moon had a bad heart attack last June while we were serving. We are so grateful she has recovered and was here to greet us!

Saying good bye to some of our sweet sister missionaries.

Mac and Janet Coleman who are on a one year consulting assignment became dear friends while we were serving. They had both served in French speaking missions when they were younger. He is doing some work with the military.

Elder and Sister Moody have been accomplishing many great humanitarian projects throughout the mission. We loved serving with them and playing with them and eating with them and walking with them. We even shared a few tears with them Their combined talents make them a top notch Humanitarian Couple!

Our farewell party at the mission home hosted by President and Sister Headlee. They are doing a great job in very challenging circumstances. We were privileged to work with them!

Pascal and his wife Gloria. Pascal is one of the hardest workers you will find. He has the greatest sense of humor and is a joy to work with. We are so excited for he and Gloria with the upcoming birth of their baby.

Oh how we love Pascal and Eustache! They have deep rooted places in our hearts. We will always cherish the experience we had working with them
One of our last nights on the roof of our apartment building. We loved the beautiful sunsets from that vantage point.
