"Souper" P-Day with Our Zone

Today was change day, so all the missionaries in the zone gathered in Tarma for their P-Day. Beverly made a huge pot of soup (chicken, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, rice, pasta, onions, celery, peppers, and spices):

Scott made sixty sandwiches (35 tunafish and 25 egg salad, with onions, red peppers, mayo, lettuce, and tomatoes) and added potato chips and soda crackers to the plates.

And 16 elders in our zone, along with Scott and Beverly, ate all the sandwiches and most of the soup. Our meal also included soda pop and cake. Nobody went away hungry. The elders shown here include (far left to right clockwise around the circle): Elders Bac, Watters, Zambrano, Bates, Choque, Herrera, Carraciela, Shiflett, Santa Cruz, Bird, Illachura, Delgado, Cossio, Puglisi, Santos, and Mendez.

It will be sad to see some of these elders leave in the next day or two, and we will be happy to meet the new ones who arrive. Such is life on change day.

Looks like a fun p-day. Those missionaries are lucky to have the two of you in the area!

Yummy food! You're feeding everyone - physically AND spiritually everywhere you go! What a blessing you are to all.

Transfers were always bitter-sweet for me. Sweet because they represented a new adventure, bitter to leave friends behind (most of whom I never saw nor heard from again).
