Week 8.5 Leaving Modesto CA: A Transfer Across the Ocean 8/29/2016

Flying Out: A Transfer Across the Pacific Ocean
Leaving the Modesto California Mission and Going to the China Hong Kong Mission

Once a month, missionaries receive a mission "transfer call." This is when they learn if they are staying or moving to a new city, and if they will keep or change their missionary companion.
The day after the transfer call, missionaries have their p-day (preparation day) to pack and prepare to move the next day.
Sunday night, 8/28/2016, Elder Joseph Chou received his transfer call. His visa had arrived. The next day, Monday morning, he would be leaving the Modesto California Mission and flying to the China Hong Kong Mission.
He has a 16-hour direct flight to Hong Kong by himself (no traveling companion). He is excited to go to the China Hong Kong Mission, meet his new mission president, and find out who will be his new missionary companion and new area in Hong Kong.
