Transfer Day at the Yakima Transfer Site

2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-71At 11:30 we left for the Yakima Stake Center with the new missionaries.  We pulled in to a parking lot of excited missionaries waiting to greet our newest fellow missionaries.  It was a perfectly beautiful day here in Yakima.  65 degrees.  Warm sun.  Crisp Fall air.  And lots of happy faces.  From here missionaries are taken to various places in the mission, sort of like the Hogwarts Express.  Those going to the northern zones go first to Quincy, a satellite transfer site, where others will be gathering to drop off and pick up.

This morning’s early run to Goldendale was back here, with missionaries heading north from down south.  From Yakima to the top of our mission is about a 5+ hour drive.  From Yakima to the southern most part is about a 3 hour drive.

Here are some of the happy faces we saw here today:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-722016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-74Meeting new companions:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-752016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-772016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-782016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-802016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-81Old friends reunited:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-822016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-83Welcoming our new Sisters:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-84Organizing luggage:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-872016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-88Last moments together:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-89Which way do I go now??2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-902016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-912016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-94Excitement builds:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-952016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-962016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-97Keeping track of the details:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-99New companions:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1002016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-101Is there room for 2 more boxes?2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-103Good members who help us transport missionaries:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-105Pack it high and pack it deep!2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-106Who said they needed a bed??2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1072016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1092016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-111Got your sack lunch?2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1122016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1132016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-114Gathering for a prayer before departing:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1162016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1182016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1212016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-123Getting acquainted:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1252016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1312016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1322016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-138These three were doing service nearby and came to help:2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-139Adios!2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1402016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1412016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1422016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1432016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1452016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1492016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1502016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1522016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1542016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1562016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1572016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-1582016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-161We love our office couples!2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-163The Yakima Stake Center, where good things happen.2016-11-9-arrivals-transfer-site-yakima-164
