Fred and Candy Bertrong depedida...They are going home

One of the heart warming events here in the mission field is when a missionary couple is getting ready to return home from the mission field.  We as a group have a going away party for them and then at the end they speak to us.  It generally is very heartfelt their comments.  Tonight was no exception.  Fred and Candy Berthrong are from Utah and are converts.  He was a nuclear scientist.  Both very smart and engaging.  They have worked as Humanitarian missionaries for the last 18 months for the country of Chile.  We have enjoyed their conversations as they have been very enlightening and fun.  We will miss them.  I am attaching a group picture from August of 2012 to contrast the group of April 2013.  It has changed a bit.  We had lots of food and good conversation.
