Held at the Sello Hotelli Restaurant, Saturday, October 17th, 5:00 P.M.

And yet another FAREWELL DINNER amongst our missionaries here at the Finland Temple! This is our Russian Missionary Couple. They leave on Friday morning, October 23rd and head back to Russia. Brother Valilijev is the ONLY Russian sealer in the church as far. They have been here two years!

Part of the 'group' joining in the festivities! Ojala, Jakko (two dots over the 'a' and 'o') and the Johnson's.
More of the group.....Veli Scott to far left, President Vorimo next to him, Grober's on the same side I am on. Wayne is taking the picture.
Head table would be: President & Sisar Luthy, Pavel and his wife (Pavel does NOT like having his picture taken) and the Vasilijev's. Pavel translates for them.
And President Luthy saying a few words.
It was a GREAT evening and they will be missed. The Luthy's leave on Friday, October 30th. They will definitely be missed. Their BIG parties begin this coming week......several of them! Wayne and I are the NEXT AMERICAN MISSIONARIES to be released.....and that is December 2010! Nice to have a 'steady' group of workers for a minute or two!! :-)
