After Pres Monson’s funeral we went to the Mission Office back in Yakima to welcome Elder Corrington there. He is heading home to get his shoulder fixed. We are so sad to see him go. Here’s who we found when we arrived. The APs were sending some info out to other missionaries.Elder Anderson had just received a fun letter from friends at home:We are saying goodbye to our Mission Christmas tree. It’s time to take it down. Sigh.These Elders came to help with the re-assignments. Elder Rodriguez will be taking Elder Corrington’s place in Toppenish and Elder Garcia will join Elder Medina and Elder Berrett here in Yakima.Elder and Sister Royal came–they will be taking Elder and Sister Call’s place here in the office in a few months. They will be coming in from time to time to start learning how things are done. We are so excited to have them join us!These Elders dropped by to pick up a package, and they were here for all the action!Elder Call’s magnet globe:
And here are Elder Rigby and Elder Corrington. He slipped on the ice a week or so ago and dislocated his shoulder. It has dislocated 3 more times since that fall. It’s time to get it fixed. He’ll be going in for surgery when he goes home. What a loss to the WYM.Brotherly love.Brother Hatfield will be flying to SLC with Elder Corrington to help him get where he needs to go. We are grateful for these good member friends of the mission.Companions until today:The changing of the Toppenish guard!Elder Rich gets his TIWI card, finally!And they’re off to the airport in Pasco, where they have a direct flight to Salt Lake.Farewell, WYM Friends!Back to work. . . Elder and Sister Call brought me a favorite birthday treat–oatmeal pear cookies from Johnson’s Orchards!! YUMMMMM!
And then we headed back to Selah to continue the interviews there.
