|Elder Wendell - he served with us in |
our ward for almost 8 months.
He was transferred this week.
We will miss him!
|Sister Palmer served in the YSA ward|
that we helped out with this summer.
She went home to Farmington.
I am so glad she lives close enough
to see her after our mission.
|I want to be like Nephi! Our Senior|
Well it was a wonderfully busy week this last week and this week has been even busier - hence the late post - sorry. This will have to be short because I don't have a lot of time now. Last week started with our Senior Couple Family Home Evening. One of the Senior Sisters has written some wonderful poems and songs and she
entertained us all and even got us all participating with balloons made into swords and the sword of Nephi.
Tuesday was full of saying goodbye to many of our dear missionaries. It was transfer week so the older missionaries went home, we got new ones, our ward elder got transferred out etc. Changes, changes, changes. Wow It is hard to get used to it. All of those changes have to be planned meticulously by the Assistants to the President and the Mission President. This was our new President's first transfer and he worked extra hard to make sure it was right. I have been amazed as different things have come out that makes us know that the Lord is in the details of the mission. One missionary has been waiting for a visa for over 6 months. He is going to Brazil. His visa finally came through and he will be leaving in 4 weeks. Unknown to us, his new companion happens to have been raised in a home where they spoke Portuguese. He will be able to study his language and brush up on it while waiting the last bit of his time here.
|Good bye to Elder Cena|
|Transfer meeting - all of the missionaries who are|
getting new companions or changing areas
come to the meeting packed and ready to
drive off to where ever the Lord calls them!
|Roger and Ron enjoying a good laugh! Something|

our temporary abode.
One of the new Senior Couples who will be coming to work in the office in a month, came out to train for a week with the couple that is leaving next week. So we were able to have Elder Knorr come hang out with us too. It is fun to note that Elder Knorr's wife is really good friends with my cousin Jane! Small world. We are looking forward to getting to know them better and serve with them in the office.
|Beaching it with Ron and Linda!|
So we are already into Thursday of this week. We have been busy catching up at the office and in the ward, moving out of our wonderful fairy tale apartment in La Jolla and back into our little home back in reality, learning more, serving more, teaching classes, preparing one of the ladies I have been working with to go to the temple next week, helping with a lady who I love greatly who suffers with depression, ushering at the Old Globe theatre etc. Not much time until tonight to sit and type.
Things should be slowing down a bit this week. Cameron and Kami come next week! Can't wait to see them.
