Returning with Honor

Oh, so close!  Luci is waiting...
Here she comes!
Sister Ludlam returned home with honor.  She completed her mission to Mérida, México, arriving home in New Jersey at 7:42 pm on Thursday, April 16, 2015. We captured the moment the best we could on cell phone cameras. She radiated a beautiful glow -- and it wasn't just her south-of-the-border tan!  Lots of tears and lots of hugs....

Within an hour of her arrival, our stake president, Bruce Jones, released Sister Ludlam from her calling as a full-time missionary.  She took off her name tag and became Lia once again.  We are so proud of her!

Crossing the Línea de Meta (Finish Line)
What a wonderful weekend we have had together as a family.  These are days never to be forgotten.  So wonderful to hear her report to the High Council, come to church with us, catch up on 18 months of life, Skype with Grant-- sharing all the sweet things that bring us joy.  We hope you enjoy some of her homecoming moments in pictures.

We love you, Lia!  We are excited to see you move on to your next big adventure!
Welcome Home, Lia!

¡Bienvenida a Casa, Hermosa Lia!

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation.  --Isaiah 52:7
Days Never to be Forgotten!
Hurrah for Israel!
