Stories of Missionaries Who Gave the Last Full Measure of Devotion

312 pages softcover $22.95 (now on special)

Compiled and Edited by Susan B. Woods

Of the more than one million missionaries who have served in this last dispensation, less than one tenth of one percent have ever qualified for ?THE TRANSFER,? thus making it an extremely rare occurrence in the work of the Lord.

This book was written to honor the memory of those whose departure has been borne most heavily by the families left behind. Here is a compilation of their stories, as told by loved ones -- describing the unwelcome sacrifices evidently deemed necessary or even crucial to the opening of doors, turning of keys and blessing of thousands of lives.

Compiled over the span of more than four years, these stories include missionaries who have served from the beginning of the Restoration to those "transferred" as recently as last year. Included is the story of a General Authority who died while serving as Area President in Chile, a poignant case of changing assignments in an extraordinary manner.

Each story is a microcosm of the life of many missionaries ? a series of events that prepared the individual to serve, premonitions on the part of the missionary or family members, the ?perfect accident? that takes a life or maims a missionary for life ? these and many other bittersweet stories are shared by families whose sorrows and compensatory blessings make their loved one?s story at once personal and universal.

In the process of compiling stories for this opening volume, additional stories, too numerous to include in this edition, have continued to pour into the author/compiler?s archives. Those will be shared in subsequent publications.

Many Have asked which names are featured in which volumes? to that end we are publishing this list of names by volume:
