May 2013 Transfers

Transfers are somewhat anxious, because a missionary never knows when he or she will be asked to go to a different area or accept a new assignment. Missionaries often want to stay in their area, as they have worked hard with people who are wanting to learn the gospel, and have come to love many of the families and members that they serve.

May transfers brought a change in Eric's assignment as District Leader:

He was called as the Guam Zone Leader with Elder Cole, seen seated next to Eric. Eric was nervous about the assignment, but is determined to try his best to serve in this capacity. He wrote "Zone Leader is basically a trust from the Mission President, so I am trying my very hardest to be worthy of that trust."

. I know he will miss the families, and the Nortons, whom he has come to love in the District. But being a missionary is about change too. There are other assignments for him to fulfill. The adventure continues.
