Busy, Busy, Busy
|Inside the Mission Home|
It has been a very busy 2 weeks. Last week was transfer week. Let me tell you a little bit about transfers. It is organized chaos. The A.P.'s spend many, many hours going over the missionaries and who should be with who. It is all ultimately up to the mission president, but they do all of the changes and rearranging, then he gives his imput. The reason I know how much time the a.p.'s put into this process is because they are at the office for hours and hours. After hours and before we come into the office. They are really remarkable young men, with a great grasp of the personalities and attributes of a great missionary. They know the missionaries very well and love them, and want them to work well together.
On Wednesday of transfer week, the new missionaries coming to our mission arrive. President and Sister Vest have picked them up at the airport. From there they go to the Temple grounds, the Liberty Jail, and the Independence Visitors Center.

The next day is transfer day when the new missionaries get to meet their new trainer companions. Also it seems like since we have been here the biggest percentage of missionaries get transferred. That morning in the office we have breakfast for the missionaries. It is very chaotic, and we love it. So many missionaries in the office at one time, they are so excited, "For the most part." I know there are some who are not too thrilled with the changes, but they make the best of it.

Last week was Zone Conference. We were asked to help with the lunches for both days of conference. They have to divide the Zone in half, both because of distances traveled and because of the number of missionaries.

It was a busy and exciting 2 weeks.
