I've gotten behind (again), so let me recap this week. It's transfer week! We went to one the transfer spot in Eugene. The missionaries were waiting for the transfer van. The Assistants have this down to a science (even with this being Elder Holman's first transfer). It's a beautiful day, about 70 degrees and everyone is happy!

Sister Ward (in the blue sweater) is saying goodbye, as this is her last full day in the Oregon Eugene Mission. Sister Phipps is standing next to her car while Sister Holiday and 
Sister Udall give us great big smiles!

 ...not quite sure what they're doing in this shot, but they are enjoying it!

Now we see these three cute ladies posing for the picture. They are so awesome!!

The departing missionaries. We so hate to say goodbye!

Front row left: Sister Ward, President and Sister Russell, and Sister Brownlee. Next row left: Elder Cho, Elder Spencer, Elder Hales, Elder Whyte (one of the president's assistants), and Elder Losee. Next row left: Elder Davis, Elder Peterson, Elder Crowell and Elder Child. Last row: Elder Hinton (another of the president's assistants), you can almost see Elder Colton, and Elder Porter. These are great missionaries of the OEM!!! We will miss them!!
