When Elder S. and I were replaced as the full time member service missionaries in Grahamstown, I told president about my issues with PEF. President Wood is our spiritual leader and our bishop. He asked if I had shared these feelings with our administrators as they are the ones who would need to released us in order to accept a different assignment.
When I said, "No," President gave me this advise: "Have a firm grip on the obvious. Make the obvious clear."
An e-mail came in reply today: "This is a wonderful report and much, much appreciated. You have done all in your power to fulfil your assignment. You deserve the best. . . We are so blessed to have such a positive couple missionary. You have seen a good where many see bad, and for that you have won my heart. You hardly complained about your challenges, you just kept on working. . . "

On 25 Mar 2013, at 11:25 AM, "Elder and Sister Allen" sent this e-mail to all the PEF couples:
We are spending most of the time with our young missionaries and will host an Easter luncheon tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. after we do flat inspection as transferrs are on Wednesday. We will all watch "Jospeh and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," on DVD.
