While rare, emergency transfers can be rough on everyone. An emergency transfer usually occurs when a missionary has to go home for some reason. For example, an elder in my district had to return home for three weeks because his mother was sick (it was complicated). His companion was ET-ed to my companionship, and we were in a trio for (a very long) three weeks!
