The day of transfers is very busy. We get up early to feed the incoming missionaries who have slept at the mission home. We have some more orientation and then head for the Ox Road chapel. The transfer meeting includes talks, songs, testimonies and companion exchanges for those with new assignments , including the Greenies and their new trainers. After this meeting the departing missionaries gather to head to the temple. This is a picture outside of the building just before we head to the temple. We feed them a gourmet lunch of water, granola bars, and fun fruits or fresh fruit. Group includes:Sis Hunt, Bay, Johnson, and Lofgran -Back row: Elders Sill, Williams, Balkwin,Metcalf, Bales, Nielson, Bell, Elder Hunts brother and Elder Hunt, Sis & Pres. A.
After the temple we return to the mission home for dinner. This includes all departing missionaries and their families who have come to pick them up, office staff, assistants, recorders, and us.
