CAN IT REALLY BE TRANSFER WEEK ALREADY?
This morning at 9:00 the 2 departing elders came to the house for their final interviews. President visited with Elders Wiggins and Shapiro for about half hour each. Don't ask me what goes on behind closed doors, but they were all smiles when they came back out. I got to enjoy visiting with Elders Nickel and Porter along with the departing missionaries while the interviews were taking place. It is always a joy to visit with these young men. They are so fun and I love hearing about their lives and adventures. We'll miss both Elders Wiggins and Shapiro. These transfers take place every 6 weeks. This is the busiest and one of the most fun weeks of the cycle out here in the field. President is with the Assistants over at the office making the transfer calls this evening. It has taken them about 24 hours to complete the transfer assignments this time. Lots of prayer and inspiration. Glad I don't have to do it. (Reminds me a little of Visiting Teaching coordinating and making routes). Our pictures show the elders who are leaving each with President Albright and then with the elders who brought them over to the mission home.
