The transfer Fireside is fabulous. There were about 250 people there. These departing missionaries are very loved by their converts, investigators and the members of the ward they served in. They are able to tell so many people goodbye at these fireside and from the pictures you can see that after the fireside alot of people stay to visit and say farewell to them. Before the fireside we have a banquet at the house. The wonderful office couples come to the house while we are at the temple and get it on the tables so when we arrive its already. We had 22 for dinner. One really special surprise was Hermana Capps brother, Samuel goes to school at Annapolis here and he came to dinner and the fireside. It was beautiful.
