November 25, 2010. We got up early with the 7 or 14 missionaries that had arrived on time and had breakfast cooked by the assistants and I. We then headed for the Ox Road Chapel and the Assistants and Pres. headed for the airport to get the other 7 who had just arrived. We met them at the chapel and had a little visit and introduced them to their trainers, who greeted them with open arms and big hugs. I think they felt safer after meeting their wonderful trainers. Only the best are trainers. We had an exciting transfer meeting and headed out to work. Breakfast with Elders Calvert and Bezzant, Sister Hardt, Elder Bates and Peterson(office elders), Sister Holt, Elders Freemand and Merrill.

Same from having dessert the night before, including Elders Merrill, Mobley, Bates, Freeman, Pres., Calvert, Bates, Sisters Holt and Hardt, and Elder BezzantThree Fine Chefs!!! Love the young men. Elder Williams cooking his last meal at the mission home before he heads home next month. We will miss him. He has served as Assistant for 7 months.

Elders Williams and Karren.

Three Loyal and Faithful Assistants. There was no room left in the other dining room.

Arriving at Transfer Meetings. Lots of cars and luggage and bikes, and Ties.

It's a mystery how they go from bring 7 or 8 ties to about 100.
For transfer they bring everything with them to move to their next place.
