Welcome Elder Leavitt and Transfers

Elder Leavitt has arrived safely - but not in Yaounde'.  He got off the plane in Douala instead of Yaounde' and called the Gailey's after looking for a couple of hours for someone to pick him up.

Meanwhile, Whitesides and Elders Addington and McGrath were waiting at the Yaounde' airport.  We received a phone call from Elder Gailey that went something like this:

Elder Gailey:  Where are you?  Elder Leavitt has been looking for you for 2 hours.
Sister Whitesides:  We are right here at the airport.  I'm not sure how we missed him.  We have been here for 1 hour.
Elder Gailey:  He said he is going to go out and wait in the front of the airport.
Sister Whitesides:  We don't see him.  We are all spread out, searching in both directions.  Are you sure he is in Yaounde'?
Elder Gailey:  Well, I didn't think to ask him if he was.  I'll try calling the man back whose phone Elder Leavitt used.
Elder Gailey:  He's here in Douala.  We'll go pick him up.
Where is Elder Leavitt?

We picked up our new transferring Elders yesterday.  Elder Leavitt came up with them.  We are always happy to see them arrive.  They come on the bus to us from Douala, which is a 4 hour bus ride.  We welcomed Elder Graham, Elder Gelinas and Elder Leavitt as well.
