OCTOBER TRANSFERS

The TRANSFER of the KEYS...

(Elder Brower to Elder McOmber)
The TRANSFER-ing OUT of our six departing missionaries...
(Pres. and Sis. Ogden, Elders Forbes, Davis, Brower, Rose, and Walker...and Sis. Bannister)

The TRANSFER-ing IN of our seven new missionaries...

Pres. Ogden, Elder Duke (Arkansas), Elder Cyron (Germany), Elder Magpanty (Phillipines and Germany), Sister Bioleome (Africa and Germany), Elder Andersson (Finland), Elder Wang (China), Elder Leung (China), and Sister Ogden.

We always say goodbye to our departing missionaries with a little bit of sadness (well, maybe more than a little bit). We're so proud of them...and happy for their families to have them back...but we will miss them. They're a great group. They've accomplished so much, and have been worthy examples to the younger missionaries.

We're excited to welcome our new missionaries. They're enthusiastic and excited, and all are off to a good start. As you can see, we have a very International group this time!!! Its wonderful!


I have to show off my "girls"...all fifteen of them in the same place.


Sister missionaries from Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Alaska, Holland, Italy, Scotland, Australia, Austria, Africa, Germany, and the Ukraine.

They are AMAZING women!!!

Whoa that first picture is AWESOME. Looks like an eventful day. I wish I could have met all of those sister missionaries. They're lucky to have you.

That looks like a super fun group of sisters! I bet it is so fun to have them all together in one place. Keep blogging... We can't get enough

It all looks like SO much FUN!! :) It does look like an amazing group of girls. And welcome to the newbies! It's neat to hear where they are from... and does this mean you have a new AP? I want to hear more about that first picture.

I haven't thought about you guys having to say goodbye to departing missionaries...that must be really hard. How fun though to welcome the new ones. The sisters do look like a fun group.

I'm glad you had a great transfer week, and happy for you both that its over...it seems like such a huge amount of work! Thanks for the post!
