Thursday, October 1, 2009

Today was another very busy day in the Mission Office. First we got word that the assistant to the president out in “El Campo”, Elder Albers, will be leaving for home in Conroe, Texas two weeks earlier than originally planned. He was scheduled to go home on November 24th but now he will be leaving on the 10th of November. Something like this requires a lot of special work and processing by Hna. Johnson. For example his airline tickets are already purchased. Hna. Johnson had to place a call to SLC to start the process of changing everything. It is quite a process. But it’s OK. We love our missionaries and work very hard to make everything go smoothly for them, especially in their last few months. Our job is to keep them focused on the work and minimize any disruption in their service as missionaries.

Next the President informed us that there would be an emergency transfer that would require moving about a dozen Elders, completely closing one of their apartments and finding a new apartment; all this to be done by tomorrow. Just when Hna Johnson and I were thinking we were getting all of our work done, a moment like this reminds us that there is never a dull moment in the office.
