We never know how many extra mouths we will have to feed during transfers. Trains, planes, and buses are sometimes delayed. This time we had so much snow in one of the towns that the missionaries had difficulty getting out. Some of the travel times are long and tedious. A missionary can be on a train for 10 hours. This time we had a group of missionaries show up at the villa at 10:30 at night. They were hungry and cold. They are used to waking up at 6:30 am and being in bed asleep at 10:30 pm so late arrivals and early departures throw their schedules off. We do the best we can to help ease the stress of transfers. Life is always better when your stomach is full.
