We recently had to say goodbye to 4 different units here in Botswana. Some of them took early retirement, one was headed back to the States to get married, and one moved to Kenya. Living on. the mission field is filled with a lot of hellos and goodbyes, yet it never gets easier saying goodbye. This past weekend we said goodbye to Robert and Margaret Fortenberry. They have been missionaries for 21+ years here. They meant a lot to Batswana and our family, especially our kids who they adopted as their grandchildren. Here are a few shots of their farewell party and click on this link if you would like to see a video of their time in Botswana https://youtu.be/lbuHb2VQFpg.
