Tuesday, June 22, 2010 (Traslados)

Well, it happened again, another surprise at “Traslados” (Transfers). When we got to the transfer chapel this morning at 6:45 we discovered that our mission had been given a missionary we weren’t expecting. Yesterday we were very surprised to discover that one of missionaries was missing so we would be short one, now this morning we find out we will have another missionary. The reason is that one of the missionaries at the “CCM” (MTC) in Santo Domingo was supposed to leave for Puerto Rico. However her Visa did not arrive so she will be working in our mission until it does. It’s great though. She will fit into the place that was already prepared for the Hermana that didn’t make it to the CCM. Pres. Almonte and the AP’s can handle any unforeseen turn of events without batting an eye.

Still, we only received 5 missionaries today. That is the smallest group we’ve received since we’ve been here. The total number of missionaries in the mission has dropped to 194 but next transfer it will go up a little bit. We seem to be holding pretty steady between 190 and 205 missionaries.

Our five missionaries came to us from the USA (1) the Dominican Republic (2) and El Salvador (2). They are all great young missionaries. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, they are the Lord’s finest. It is a privilege to be here and to work with them.

We finally have our Mission Office credit cards back! After weeks of working with “Centro de Servicio” and SLC, the block has finally been lifted on both of the mission office credit cards. It has been a struggle for Hna. Johnson to keep the mission on a solid financial footing without them but late this afternoon we finally received an e-mail from Hna. Fildel Filpo, the brother in charge of all the credit cards in the Caribbean Area, that all of the problems have been fixed and we can finally start using the cards again. Yahoo! Good work Hna. Johnson!
