Family Home Evening Party for Elder Allred

~ This page is about our ZL
Elder Allred ~

When we arrived in Chuuk he was serving on the island of Siapan.  We met the Senior couple that was serving over there, Elder and Sister Jones and as we talked we expressed our love for our elders in Chuuk. At the time we had no idea we would be sharing our elders with them throughout our mission. We have shared 3 of our elders with them.  Elder Allred came over to Chuuk in April 2012 and served on the island of Uman.  We had the opportunity to work with him while doing GPS on that island.  We had some incredible tender mercies that we have already blogged about there on Uman with him. Then we had an even greater opportunity to get to know him when he became a zone leader.  We attend the same branch and got to enjoy Sunday dinners together.
Well, we are not the only ones that love this young man.  We had an FHE branch goodbye party for him.  The branch prepared a dinner and a few people bore their testimonies and thanked him for everything he has done for them and also expressed their love for him.  Then we played an FHE game.  Of course the Tiffany's team won the game
 < Go Koolaid > that was the team name...
The pictures here are a few of the families with Elder Allred.  You can tell how loved he is.  A lot of heavy hearts tonight realizing he is leaving them. 
He was given plenty of going away gifts to express their love for him. 
Chuukese always greet you with a gift coming and going.

~I'm not heavy, I'm your brother. 
 Elder Tiffany and Riaton love this Elder ~

 Everyone in the Zone will miss this young man 
and he will be remembered fondly.

Godspeed Elder Allred!!
