Some like surprises more than others. Like extra goodbye kisses and hugs in connecting airports? Why not! I would have loved to see the look on Elder McLaughlin's face as he walked off the plane and was greeted by his Ama in Salt Lake City at the gate! In perfect Ama-style, she brought him homemade cookies to share around with the other 20 or so missionaries headed down to Mexico City. I think the cookies helped calm his nerves and became a talking point to meet the other missionaries flooding the terminal. Best Ama Ever.
Another series of goodbyes...
