Time to Say Goodbye

Sister Barrett's report date has finally arrived! Her final weekend in Ireland was busy and emotional, with lots of bittersweet goodbyes. Now that she is on her mission, I will be posting photos and updates from her weekly emails and letters.

Her farewell on Saturday evening was a huge success, with about 100 people coming to wish her well on her mission. There were special performances from "Right Direction" and the wonderful Alex Sharpe, as well as a slideshow of photos from her life and a huuuuuge cake!

On Sunday evening, Sister Barrett was set apart by the stake president, assisted by her dad and her bishop. 

I had the great (dis)pleasure of turning off her iPod for the last time!

She flew out of Dublin Airport Monday morning, and after about 15 hours of travelling, she arrived safely in Salt Lake City and was picked up by the wonderful Connolly family, who she will be staying with until she reports to the Provo Missionary Training Center early tomorrow afternoon.

Final goodbyes in the airport!

With her latest companion, Sister Connolly in Utah.

Sister Barrett will be in the MTC for two weeks. If you want to write to her, you can have letters delivered to her free of charge by using www.dearelder.com.
