Transfers came up faster this time, literally. In order to not have them take place during Christmas week, the time was moved up a week. We had a change of Assistants so Elder Gosar can go back to being a full-time proselyting missionary. He was excited to do that. We miss him, but are happy for him. Elder Cottle has come to be the new Assistant. We did not have an opportunity for our picture in front of the fireplace. We love him, also!
We lost more missionaries than came in on this transfer. Here are some pictures of those who returned home.
Love having the Mortons come to join as we have our farewell fireside.
Look closely at who is in the picture. Our missionaries are alive and well, even after being released!
