This was transfer week, Sister Tanner had a birthday, Elder Head left the office to become a zone leader in Bogo, Elder Miranda and Elder Remer are now assisting in the office, one of us got a ticket for making an illegal U-turn, we delivered a load of stuff for apartments to Lapu-Lapu and took the zone leaders there to lunch at McDonalds, one of us also ran over a dog, and we visited both the Giasano Grand Mall in Mactan and Pacific Mall in Mandaue for the first time. I believe we have mentioned before how malls are big here, both in size and popularity. We may not have mentioned how many dogs there are - and how they like to sleep in the road...
One of the joys of being a financial secretary is the opportunity to meet with every departing missionary one-on-one to take care of a few finance related items. Sister McNett is in contact with these missionaries several weeks before they leave as travel arrangements are made and other related items taken care of. It is a chance to get to know them a little better, find out their feelings about going home and what some of their future plans are. We feel privileged to be a small part of the transition to the next phase of their lives and are grateful for this contact with them. The situations they return to are as varied and unique as each missionary, but we wish them well as they continue with their lives.
