For 18 months now, I have taught the 12-14 year olds in Sunday School. They have been so much fun! We have some days where the Spirit is so strong, and we make headway on the meaty subjects of the Gospel. And then... There are days when they are so clever & silly we get no where.
Either way I enjoy the kids, and meeting these new kids with the turn of a new year makes me a little disappointed and sad that I will not get to know them.
Instead I am called to be "The Compassionate Service Coordinator"
Yeah, its a mouthful; Basically I get to be the to wrangle up service opportunities for all the ward members. I had this calling once before in Payson. and it was not fun. I was often told "NO" when a sister needed dinners brought in, I was often the brut of rude remarks if they didn't get enough meals brought in. IT was a tough ward!
NOT SO with this ward!
They are VERY compassionate, and caring and always willing to serve. We have a very needy ward right now as I imagine many do) with all the unemployment, and the illness, we have had our share of crises in this ward. I have not been told no by a soul. I have been warmed tot he Soul to hear of offers, and going the extra mile.
I look forward to serving with the Ladies in this Relief society presidency.
I look forward to serving the numerous sisters and families in the ward who have need of help.
