After two faithful, fruitful years of dedicated full-time service to the Lord, Elder Sears is joyfully welcomed home by those who love him most in all the world:
Joseph (19), Andrew (13), Abigail (15), Mom,
Elder Sears (21), Dad, and Spencer (15)
Elder Sears's 8-hour overnight flight from Campinas, Brazil finally arrives August 21, 2014 at 6:15 AM in Atlanta, Georgia. 70 minutes of airport anticipation seemed to match two years of waiting, but finally Bradford's parents and siblings, Grandma and Grandpa Sears, and Shell "cousins" were ecstatic to greet their exhausted but beaming return missionary.

Pres. Ron Cheney, dear friend and 2nd counselor in Power Springs Stake presidency, releases Elder Sears from his full-time missionary calling and introduces him to the family as "Brad."
Home at last!! The Sears family reunited again at 455 Schofield Drive, Powder Springs, Georgia.
