New Callings

Jeff and I have both received new callings. Jeff was called to be the Assistant Executive Secretary, and if you know Jeff, you know how much he likes to make phone calls...if you don't know Jeff, trust me, he's not a phone guy. He doesn't make phone calls, he doesn't answer our phone when it rings, he won't even order a pizza. This call will be great for him :). Actually, he was called last week, and after one week, he has foundthat he is actually liking it. Today he was officially released as a Sunday School teacher to the 14 year olds.

Today I was released as a Beehive Advisor, a calling I love, but called as the Young Women 1st Counselor, so I get to stay in the Young Womens' program and, I'll get my girls back in, at most, two years, so I'm happy. The Mia Maid girls that I get to work with now are great, and I am really excited. There are 20 of them (gulp) but with the three awesome advisors and I, we should have a lot of fun. Wish both Jeff and I luck in our latest endeavors!

So fun. And yes I remember how much your Jeff liked to make phone calls, about the same amount as my Jeff. So fun that you get to be in YW still. I really miss it since I've been released.

20 mia maids?? wow. that's a lot of giggling and chattering. i had that calling ages ago (my girls are getting married and having kids now!) and it was so fun.

and i totally sympathize with jeff. i hate it too. my nightmare calling would be one where i had to make a lot of calls. oh. i shouldn't say that, should i? :)
