Elder Wiltse with his parents.
Copyright © 2006 Barry G. Moses.
Adam Wiltse returned from his mission to Guatemala and we joined his family to welcome him home. The crowd waited anxiously to catch a glimpse of their return missionary and broke out into applause as soon as he came into view. I felt myself wanting to cry with emotion from the reunion.
Adam had a weary look on his face from hours of travel, and bewilderment from reverse culture shock. I remember the feeling well from my own return years ago.
He and I only had a brief moment to visit, just long enough to find out my former companion Elder Samayoa was his bishop for seven months. I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about.
