Here's a Tribute to All the Missionaries Who Left Unauthorized Selfies on My iPhone:)))

 My daughter put this on my desktop before we entered the MTC:)
My son-in-law at our last family vacation in Cancun prior to our mission:
My daughter couldn't resist:
Welcoming us at the mission home upon our arrival to Taichung:
Oh Elder Darrington, we love you!
Our first Operations Manager!
Our third AP. Looks so serious but he's so NOT!
APs at the top of Taipei 101, taking our returning missionaries on a tour before their departure:
See, I told you he wasn't serious!
Together with our cookie baking OPS manager:
Looks like he needs more chocolate chip cookies!
On a Taipei Temple trip, 2-19-14:

Here she is!
Later at the mission home:
And in the backyard by the banana tree. 
Yep, you guessed it, that's why I make banana bread for our missionaries!
Is she missing Korea?

Or having too much fun being back with Mom and Dad?
Or maybe can't decide?
This is the only pic you'll ever see of me in my pajamas!
Already borrowing Mom's clothes:

Awesome convert in Jiayi!

Love these returned missionaries from Jiayi! 
But they didn't serve in our mission, they both served in the U.S.!
Same look, same place...different day!
Returning to Taiwan, he and this Taiwanese sister RM sang to us in a departing fireside in Taichung, 6-2016:
Two days ago I got to see this sister on the right after she flew into SLC from St. Louis. Her boyfriend on the left, another Taichung RM, let us in on a secret - he was planning on proposing the next day!
And guess what? She said, "YES!" 
Thanks for giving me so many fun pictures to remember you all by!
