Learning with our hearts

This truly is the hardest part of our mission, saying goodbye to our elders. These fine young men put a lot of sweat and tears into teaching and loving the people they serve. They are forever bound together by faith in a personal God, that is, God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Ghost, who facilitates prayer and also influences personally.
This is Elder Fisher and Elder Kearl. . .They leave us today to return to their families. They will be forever loved by those to whom they brought the light of truth. Their teachings will be found in their service. Their examples will be guides to follow. Their faith will prompt courage to meet life’s challenges.
Elder Kearl joined the Chuuk Zone in July and served in the Sapuk Branch. He is a wonderful Elder full of spirit. He was respected a great deal by the Zone for his dedication to the mission. We didn't get to spend a lot of time with him, but what little time we had together was very special to us. We can be grateful for his example and his work.”
Elder Fisher, what a guy, he has a huge heart and an incredible amount of talent. He has a beautiful singing voice that we all enjoy listening to and he loves everyone and is "Super" friendly. He learned the Chuukese language very well and loved sharing it whenever possible. When we went out to do missionary work with him, we would always get a entourage of children and young adults following us. They really liked being with him. His fun loving personality will surely be missed by many.
This is only part of our zone.  We are missing four, two are in Guam getting two new elders. Our missionaries are not salesmen with wares to peddle; rather, they are servants of the Most High God, with testimonies to bear, truths to teach, and souls to save.Thomas S. Monson
May we learn what we should learn, do what we should do, and be what we should be.
