A Last Gasp

A Last Gasp

Our time is at it’s end. We have visited the last village. We have shared our final testimony. We have chauffeured our last ward leader. We have made our final meal for missionaries. Soon, we will take our last missionary breath before leaving for home.

We return to Utah on Wednesday, July 20th, where we will meet our family (including five grandchildren we have never seen), and celebrate family anew.

After our family campout the following week, we will return and report our mission in sacrament meeting in the Mapleton 5th ward on Sunday, July 31st, at 9:00 a.m. We invite any who wish to worship with us, and stay for the other meetings so we can introduce you to our ward family.

Words or even tears cannot express our gratitude to God for the tender mercies we have received while on our mission. Both we and our family have been richly blessed, and we return feeling younger and lighter than we did when we left home. We will always shout praises to our Father for this great honor to serve. We hope we’ve made a difference, and are acutely aware of the change that has come over us.

To our dear Ugandan friends, whom we expect not to see again until we meet at Jesus’ feet, we send our warmest love and heartfelt thanks.

God be with you, ’til we meet again.

Elder Bernell & Sister RaNae Taylor

  2. Interesting choice of main post photo.. Haha.. Your missionary work is not over, as you know. The people of Uganda have been so blessed to have been taught and loved by you two, my amazing parents. Yes, our family has experienced miracles as you have been away serving the Lord full time. We look forward to our reunion in ten days and hope you have an enjoyable week ahead before you roll out. I have so much love, admiration and respect for the two of you. You are truly a magnificent couple.
