December Transfers, losing some, gaining some, AND much Humanitarian Work is done by our Church!

Transfers are always exciting, but it is tough to see some of these young men leave Chuuk for other destinations in the mission. Elder Allen has been a great Zone Leader, but as he enters that last section of his mission he is going out to Paata to train a new Elder.  Elder Bowers, standing next to Elder Allen, is going to Saipan to be a Zone Leader.  He was one of the first missionaries we went out with and served as our District Leader.  He will be missed!  Elder Daniels is going to serve in Guam and Elder Walters is going to be a Zone Leader in Guam.  We will miss Elder Walters at our District meetings as he sat right across from Sister Crisp during our dinners and meetings.  He will make a great Zone Leader!  The bottom picture is of our Zone.  Missing are Elder Toa and Elder Vehikiti, as Toa went to Guam to pick up his new companion and Elder V. was with Elder Johnson as Elder Allen went to get his new cmpanion.
The arrival of the new Elders!  Elder Monson with his trainer, our Gentle Giant, Elder Vanisi, Elder Allen with Elder Delore, from Pohnpei, and Elder Toa.  Elder Toa's companion will be coming later this month!
These two shots, top and bottom, are of our Elders as we met with President and Sister Mecham along with President and Sister Whiting of the 70 for our Semi- Annual District Conference.  Our meetings with them were all grand and the messages presented were full of the Spirit and inspirational!

This is President Davis and Koji of the church Humanitarian and Welfare Department surrounding Clark Graham, the director and founder of the Akoyikoyi Center. This is one of the schools Elder Crisp works with to improve education on Chuuk.  They also have a "Health Clinic" that provides a service to the Pedia community.  The church has provided the medical supplies for the center and a nurse comes out every weekend to serve the people. Below are President Wainis, Koje, President Davis, along with Paul Hadik, the principal of Chuuk High School.  The church has been instrumental in assisting the high school and Paul does great things to help the students on Chuuk.  This school is one that Elder and Sister Crisp assist at as well!
This last Photo shows Elder Crisp, Paul Hadik, President Davis, President Wainis, and Koji as we leave the school and head out to other areas!
