    Been home from my mission since 1969. Still remember my experiences, keep in touch with people that I taught. Take the Liahona in Danish so I can keep my language intact. Be kind and loving to those around you. Remember your mission was only the beginning, keep growing!

  2. My husband and I served our missions in the 80s. We still keep in touch with the people we taught and our companions and fellow missionaries. Personally I read and re-read my journal entries and I feel like I’m back to my mission. Our son is coming home in 6 months and I’ve found your website very helpful. Thank you for the tips, especially For the Parents of Returned Missionaries. Truly helpful, I appreciate it.
