Someone once told us that the life of a Missionary is full of "hi's" and "good-byes."
Although, we haven't been missionaries very long, we certainly can attest to the truth of that statement.
I don't know if it gets any easier, but I can tell you that this part of being a missionary sure hurts.
We have three more days here in Costa Rica and we are saying good-bye to some great friends. It's pretty wild though, in one year we have seen Missionaries leave from here to bring the gospel to the entire Latin American world.
No, it isn't easy saying good-bye, but It has been our privilege to be counted among such amazing people!
