This week we had our final meeting with President and Sister Richardson. (They returned home today after serving in Quito, Ecuador for three years). I am grateful for their example of Christ-like love and service. They have helped me to progress immenslely, and I am glad to have served under them for these past almost-two years. They have taught me how to love the sinner but hate the sin. I know that the Lord loves us, and that as we keep His commandments He will guide and bless us. I love them and I can`t wait to see them again when I am in Utah.
The following is from Heather Bahr, Elder Stephen Bahr's mom: Like Stephen, we are so very grateful for the love, care and compassion that Pres. & Sis. Richardson have given over the past 3 years. Their examples of sacrifice and service have touched our lives. Whether it has been illness, volcanoes or earthquakes, our family has been at peace knowing that these wonderful servants of the Lord have been ever watchful in caring for all the missionaries they have led. May they now enjoy a wonderful reunion with all their family and friends back home knowing that touched the lives and hearts of many.
