It was a pleasure to spend the evening with Lisa Bearnson and her amazing family. I love them as if they were my own family. Collin has been serving in Wellington, New Zealand Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was fun to see the other missionary moms who were also waiting for their loved ones to return from their missionary service
I know that Lisa and Steve were beaming with pure joy as they waited for Collin to walk from the secured area of the Salt Lake City Airport. Collin walked from the corridor holding a case that held a typewriter. He said, “I got a typewriter!” I will have to learn the complete story from him when I have time for a visit.
Lisa asked me to take photographs of Collin’s arrival. I have made a couple of Project Life pages to document the evening. Each of us that were there were so happy to share in the celebration of the safe return of all the missionaries that arrived that evening. Two years is a very long time to be away from your family but we are so thankful for their service to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
