We were also able to get them into the Science Center and the History Museum with our passes.
The districts change a little (or a lot) at each transfer meeting due to people going home, elders being transferred in, and just changes in leadership in general. Anyway, it has been a great group to work with and get to know.
We are sad to see it all come to an end, but it is just part of life on a mission. You really do have to get used to change. We can't complain because we don't have nearly as much to get used to as the young elders and sisters.
We have felt privileged to have been part of such an amazing group.
Then on July 14th we attended transfer meeting and helped to
welcome cute Sister Welch and 28 other missionaries to the mission---the biggest transfer that President and Sister Johnson have ever had. It felt like such a tender mercy and blessing for us to see her as a missionary. It will be wonderful to be able to share with her the people and places that we have come to know and love. What a unique blessing and opportunity that has come to us!
We also had some great missionary moments this week where we definitely felt the power of the Lord reaching out to some of the people that we are working with.
Moment #1----We felt the blessing of helping to get 3 great kids to youth conference in Palmyra at the very last moment. They were all so excited to go and it just wouldn't have happened if the Lord hadn't directed us to be at the right place at the right time.
Moment #2----After struggling for 2 plus weeks to get major issues with Comcast taken care of for a refugee family---everything finally worked. We got approval
Moment #3----We had a wonderful district meeting with our new district, interviews with President & Sister Johnson, and then dinner at Sister Eldridges home. Sister Eldridge is a wonderful cook that spares no calories in her cooking. The elders love her cooking and it does taste SO good. She loves the church and the elders.
