First transfer

Dear Family and friends,
     The first transfer for a mission president is a milestone.  The first set of Elders (9) and Sisters (1) going home on Tues and 10 new Elders coming in on Wednesday.  This necessitates many changes in leadership and finding ten new trainers for the new Elders.  Also I called a new assistant to the president, and Elder Alberchtson from Providence ,Utah. (Cache Valley). It has been taxing.  I have felt l had to have interviewed all the missionaries prior to asking the Lord's help in where they should serve.  These decisions affect many lives and some of them are crucial to put missionaries where they are meant to be so they can find those prepared for them.  It is all finished at present. But the final assignments for new trainers won't be made until I have personally interviewed the new Elders on Wednesday.  I'm a peace with what is happening..
     Next week will w busy with the transfers, then Fri and Sat we fly to Frankfurt ,Germany for an area conference for the 15 new mission presidents in the Europe Area and to meet our new Area Presidency:  Pres Tiexiera, Keron, and Richards.  Then home next Saturday night.  I just hope all is well while we are gone. We went to the Welling ward today, about 45 miles away.  Very nice meeting, about  one third black with beautiful English accents, ten percent spanish speakers and about 150-200 in attendance.  It is amazing to feel the spirit in the church where ever we are.   Must run to a fireside,, by for now.   Pres Millar and Sister Millar
