Sister and Elder McIntosh will be going back to Colorado to close on the sale of their house and then move back to Santa Barbara. We are happy for that. We may still get to "utilize" them.
Sister and Elder Miles have served for 23 months. They've been a blessing to have in the office.
After transfer meeting all of the departing missionaries came back to the mission home for subway sandwiches.

The Miles really did have a hard time leaving. They were all packed before going to Orientation meeting for the new missionaries. They bore wonderful testimonies at the transfer meeting (and I might say held it together very well).
The sisters helping clean up the kitchen after fondue. The elders stayed with members for the night and the sisters stayed with us.

One last picture before boarding the bus to go to LAX. I did good until they started getting on the bus. They have great adventures in store. They are all wonderful missionaries.
