We received a short message from Elder McConkie this week. He didn’t have time to write because he spent much of his Preparation day saying farewell to many of his beloved friends in Far Rockaway. As he has said before, this area has really helped him grow and he will truly always be grateful for his time there. He has shed more than a few tears. And once again, we feel like we are also being separated in a way from these dear friends. What a treasure they are!
While Elder McConkie knew he was leaving, he had to wait until Tuesday to find out where. Normally, that means we wait until the following P-day to find out. However, we had such a fun surprise! A friend from the early years when Elder McConkie’s Dad’s family lived in Ithaca posted a picture. We got a sneek preview: He is in Huntington now!
