Transfer Day

Elder Elix and Elder Nieman have been the office elders since we
arrived in July.  They were dedicated to making sure the office ran
smoothly and were a great help to us and Elder and Sister Engels.
We appreciate them and will miss seeing them in the office, but they
will continue serving the Lord in the Baguio Zone-- Elder Nieman as
Zone Leader and Elder Elix as a District Leader and Trainer. 

The Sisters gathered at the mission home to visit before going to the Transfer meeting.
