Returned With Honor

Hermana Friend's mission didn't end as she would have liked, I talked to her Mission President on January 23, 2016 with her test results.  He said that they would be sending her home for gallbladder surgery.  She arrived on Thursday, January 28, 2015 and had her surgery a week later.  This is us just before she went in for the surgery, she had been in a lot of pain and was very hopeful for a quick recovery.  Her Mission President informed us that the Church's policy on missionaries returning home for health reasons with less than 6 months remaining on their mission are reported as completing a full and honorable mission.  Taylor had only 4 months left of her 18 month mission.  Though Taylor didn't return home when and how she had intended, she did return home with honor and we are so proud of her!  She has healed well and is now moving on to the next phase of her life beginning college at BYUI in July.
