A Hard Thing in the Mission Office

The depressing part of working in the mission office is that you have to take people to the airport.  At least that is one of my many jobs.  When they are going home because they finished the two years it is cool because it’s like they are returning home conquering heroes and it’s a happy moment and you know that you are the last missionary in the mission that they are going to see.  But when they are going home before their hour, it is a bit different.  You are still the last missionary they see but the feeling not very happy. For those of you who don't know, there are only two reasons that a missionary goes home before the designated time: having health problems, or they did something they shouldn't have and are being sent home for disobedience. It’s sad to see them go.  I hope they can come back but a lot of them never do.  
Other than that my week has been crazy because the mission president has been doing interviews here in the mission office, so there were always a bunch of missionaries here.  It was a bit hectic because when missionaries come here, we are the ones who have to attend them.  Actually we do a lot of stuff.
But I don't have a lot to write.  I love you all and hope you have a good week!
