This was quite the transfer. On November 24, 2010 we were scheduled to get 14 new missionaries. But there was all kinds of bad weather going on across the country.
The missionaries were postponed until a midnight arrival. Then reassigned again. The group was split in to two groups. Half of them arrived at about 4:00 and the other half got stuck at the Chicago airport all night. They opted to sleep on the floor instead of taking the hotel rooms offered to them by the airlines, so they could get on the first plane available for DC. They arrived at 8:00 a.m. They were exhausted. The 7 that arrived in the evening had a nice dinner and orientation. We thought we would get pictures when the others arrived. But only found out in the morning and had to head straight for the airport to pick up the last group. The other 7 were driven straight to the transfer meeting at the chapel. There the 14 were reunited for about 30 minutes. Then we had transfer meeting and they departed with their new companions. I felt so bad for the last 7 that arrived. When we got together for Return and Report 2 weeks later we took these pictures.
