Sundays are usually my favorite day of the week, and yesterday was no exception. It capped off an exceptional week. The bad part is I didn’t really realize how great the week was until yesterday. I have to start living more in the now, and less in the future I guess. Either way, everything is fine.
First, there is a bit of sad news to tell you. We received our new Missionaries almost six weeks ago. Saturday we found out that one of them is going to be transferred to Oklahoma. We are going to miss Elder L, but we understand that his services can probably be best used in his new area. Elder L is from the Marshall Islands. There has been an influx of new members from the Marshall Islands, where his new area will be.
Alright, check this out. Saturday I received a phone call from a member of the Stake, asking if he could meet with me a few minutes before Church. Sure, why not. I wasn’t sure what this was going to be about, but I had an idea. I’m taking Temple Preparation classes, and I thought maybe that was what the conversation would be about. We did talk about it, but only briefly. I also know that I’m not the best speaker so I thought that maybe I would be asked to talk somewhere. That didn’t happen either, but I will have the opportunity to speak more, now, when I’m ready.
Do you remember how I received a new calling a while back? (Not really that long ago.) You remember? I made a big deal about not knowing if I would continue writing, and such (all the while never intending to really stop). You remember. Well guess what? Sunday morning I received, yet another new calling. I am no longer the Elder’s Quorum Secretary. I am now the Elder’s Quorum 2nd Counselor. What does this mean? More responsibility, I guess. I have plenty of books and articles and other resources to read, so I better get on that. I’ll be checking in periodically to let you know how it’s going.
Now, on to the arm breaking part. (Yes, that was not the back-patting segment) Last week I crossed two very exciting milestones, on the same day! First off I hit 2000 “Likes”. Yes, you really like me. Thank you so much. And so many of you like me now too. I also hit my 200 follower, technically. I currently have 189 WordPress followers, and 11 e-mail followers, which is weird, cause I know there are a more than 11 people with e-mail addresses. Hmm. Anyway, thank you all so very much for tuning in and having a read of what I have to offer. I appreciated every one of you. Have a wonderful week!
