The Colombia Coffee Grower's Strike
has adversely affected missionary transfers in the Cali mission.
Apparently NO buses can get from our southern cities to Cali,
and we wouldn't put the missionaries at risk trying to get through the rioting.
So we are on hold...it only took one strike to take out transfers!
BUT...the planes did take off and land.
After a farewell dinner and testimony meeting on Sunday night...

Monday morning we sent home 8 wonderful missionaries
From President Prince's arms to his momma's arms in SLC, UT!
(it isn't often that we get the returning photos...how fun!)
AND after 3 trips to the airport on Tuesday...
We finally received 8 new missionaries!
Hermana Flores and Hermana Gonzalez
Elders Mancilla, Campos, Gil, Jones, Vaca, and Medina
The kitchen was open ALL day with missionaries coming and going...
If you don't keep laughing, you are bound to cry after a day like today!
