Those are the numbers, but they're only part of the story. They don't tell how much we missed him. They don't tell you how hard he worked, how tired he is, or how many people he influenced. They don't tell about the sacrifices he made to be gone or that we made to let him go. They don't tell about the joys, the disappointments, the bike wrecks, the baptisms, the testimonies borne, the prayers, and the miracles.
Most of all it doesn't tell about the love. Because that's what it boils down to. Love for the people. Love for a new country. Love for the commandments. Love for our Heavenly Father and love for the Savior.
We are so glad to have him home, so glad for what lies ahead for him and so glad for what he's done.
