Preparing for Transfer week. This is when the missionaries that have completed their time go home and the next day the new missionaries from the MTC arrive, Also the new transfers are announced where some missionaries are assigned new companionships

making 150 tuna fish and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches with the sack lunches.  It's always a very busy time.  We make lunches and dinners for them for two days.  

We even get the elders helping.  Many hands makes light work. Elder Gray, Elder Farrer, dad

Dad & I teach the "Self Reliance Class" to the missionaries that are leaving to go home.  This is a great and fun class to teach as the missionaries always have questions on what to do next.  The lessons are to help prepare them for returning to home, school, work, and dating life. We really enjoy teaching this class.  These missionaries are the best of the best!

Here are the missionaries in our class getting ready to head home.  Sister Christie, Sister Kereama, Elder Litster(front), Elder Hobbs- who we met his sister in the MTC who is now serving a mission in California
