Cambios - transfers - changes
Cambios! Missionaries count their time in cambios, Our lives are structures and revolve around them. Cambios are an incredible time of excitement and sorrow. Every six weeks we say goodbye to our missionaries. We go to the temple, have a special noche de hogar, and then they are off. The same day that they are leaving we are greeting the newbies. Our new missionaries come in tired but with wide exited eyes. They usually have traveled for a long time arriving from the Provo, Mexico City, Lima or Bogata MTCs. In the midst of the comings and goings President needs to call new trainers, match new companions, move missionaries into and out of leadership positions as he feels inspired to. We have seen miracles in the process, and he has felt guided by the Lord. Although he stands alone it is wonderful to know he does not make the changes alone.
