Transfers - Our Last One!

Transfer week starts with handing out letters.  The rest of the week is spent taking departing Elders to the bus station and picking up incoming Elders.  We made 3 trips to the bus station this week.  Sounds easy, until I tell you that one trip takes us about 3 hours, by the time we pick up Elders, then deposit them with their luggage into their new apartments.  It's always a relief to get it all done.  The Gailey's in Douala, and the Bailey's in Pointe Noirre add the airport into their transfer weeks.  It takes a ton of effort from many hands.  We won't even go into the work of getting visas for them all.  But, transfers are exciting and a new start for all.  Here are a few pictures:

Farewell Elder Gelinas.  We will miss you!
Welcome Elder Johnson into Bastos!  I still need to get a picture of Elder Tripp and Kampoy in Ekounou!

  1. Transfers are such a busy time for the senior couples! Thanks for all you do for these Elders. If this is your last transfer, you must be headed home soon--I seem to remember Elder Hatch saying you are from Utah, is that so? Where? I'd love to come hear you speak in church when you return.
