James had his mission farewell on Sunday, March 28. It was his dad's turn to conduct sacrament meeting so he was able to speak on the program as well. James spoke about the restoration of the gospel and how the Book of Mormon was key to strengthening our faith in Jesus Christ, gaining a testimony of Joseph Smith, and helping us to know our Heavenly Father's will for us. Many, many family and friends supported James (thank you to all who traveled from afar to be with us). Afterwards everyone was invite to our home for refreshments. James' mother (with the help of many of our neighbors) had enough cookies, desserts, fruit, deli and vegetable trays to feed over 150 guests - whew.
