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 and its companion volumes (1 and 2) were 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 eight years, these stories include missionaries who have served from the beginning of the Restoration to those "transferred" as recently as last year.

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.
