September 2013 Departures – Hermana Reed

We are a young mission with few returning missionaries.  In fact, Sister Reed was the only missionary going home this particular week (Elder Dockstader followed a week later).  The departure dinner for Hermana Reed was held with her companion (Sister Mortensen), one of her investigator families and a couple of the convert baptisms she taught.  The convert just to her right called her from his cell phone just before his scheduled baptism – in fact – in the parking lot of the Church – and told her he was 100 miles away, in Mexico.  That caused her heart to pound — until he walked in to the Chapel ready to be baptized.  A little missionary humor!
