New Calling

Today was a big day in our family.  Michael was called to be the 1st counselor in the new bishopric.  Today was the first day he got to it up front.  For the next five or so years, he will be sitting up there and watching us in the congregation.  It was a specal day for us.  Despite the bad roads, the Feslers were able to come and share in all the events that took place today.  They have been our family away from home and we have grown to love them over the years.  We were so glad they could come.  After church we had a meeting with the new bishop and his family and our family along with the stake presidency and the Feslers.  It was a wonderful meeting and there were wonderful blessings given.  Anyways, I am proud of Michael and all that he is and of his willingness to serve the Lord and the people of the church here.  There will be hard moments and frustrations that come, but I know in the long run it will be a tremendous blessing to our family.

Congratulations again! 5 years, WOW! That's a long time, I always thought they tried to keep it around 3 or so. Good luck to all of you!
