TRANSFER DAY

Some of you may be wondering what Transfer Day is. As you all probably know missionaries are given a companion that they serve with. They do not serve with this one companion their whole mission. They are assigned new companions throughout their mission. Transfers come every 6 weeks. This is a day when the missionaries may receive a transfer to a new area as well as be assigned a new companion. They don't all get transferred every 6 weeks they usually have a change every 3rd or 4th transfer. When we get together for transfer day the missionaries bring their luggage and when the meeting is over they either take a cab, a marshruka or a bus to their new location. If they are going to the Kharkov area, like Aleksevka, Sumy, or Kharkov they have a long bus ride. I think about 6 hours. Transfer Days are always fun because everyone is usually really excited about the new changes. This day is special as well because we usually get new missionaries who have just arrived a day or two before from the Missionary Training Center (MTC). So today was an exciting day. The missionaries met in the Chapel for a talk from our Assistant to the President, Elder Permenter. That was awesome. Then President Fry spoke briefly and introduced the New Missionaries who just got in last night. Then Sister Fry prepared a nice meal and they all boarded public transportation to their new homes.
