The subject of transferring missionaries is not taken lightly. After apporaching the Lord in much prayer and fasting the preliminary transfers are made. Then President and I, along with the assistants, attend the temple to ensure each individual missionary is correctly placed as to where the Lord wants them to serve. After this is when the transfers are finalized and the calls are made. With a mission this large, the logistics of making a transfer happen smoothly are unreal. The Assistants start making arrangement for members to give the missionaries rides to and from their new areas weeks before transfers even begin. And where that's not possible, we charter a bus. The missionaries love the transfer bus and we hope to be able to make the 3 day trip at some point in the next 3 years.
