  1. I have had 2 children serve missions, and am currently serving one with my husband. I think close family and friends should be the welcoming committee at the airport. A returning missionary does not need to be overwhelmed with a huge crowd that he or she probably won’t get to interact with anyway. Give them (and the airport) some space people!
