CHANGES

Last Wednesday night I went to a candy making class for Relief Society, right in the middle of  getting the directions, I got a call and didn't recognize the number so I put it on ignore. Well, after we were dismissed to go to the kitchen, I called the number back and it was President Jensen of the Stake Presidency!!!! He wanted Dave's number so I gave it to him and waited patiently (NOT) to call Dave and see what was up. Dave said that he wanted to meet with us the following afternoon. Do you know the anxiety that in tells? I was a nervous wreck, we thought that maybe he would be getting released after 3 years of being the 2nd Councilor in the Bishopric. Thursday afternoon finally came, Pres. Jensen talked to us for a while and could see that I was so nervous, so finally he said that they wanted to release Dave from 2nd Councilor and put him in as 1st Councilor. We are so excited that he was not released yet. Since he was put in, we have felt the prayers in his behalf, and this calling has brought so many blessings to our family. We will do what ever the Lord wants us to do, and this is where Dave needs to be. We will miss  Dave Sargent in the Bishopric, but know he is where he needs to be too! Craig Brady has taken Dave's place as 2nd Councilor. He is a great person, and has an awesome family.
Dad and Mom came on Sunday to see this all take place. Dad was able to stand in the circle when Dave was set a part for this calling. There was such an awesome Spirit in the room. I love being a member of this Church, the Lord truly is in charge of all things!!!!
I'm a "widow" for 6 days while Dave is in the Valley for some training related to the certification that he just got. He called and said it is quite an eye opening experience. He is a really fast learner so I know he will do great and will learn a lot from this training!! Love ya Babe. so proud of you:)

It was great spending Sunday with you and enjoying your ward and the good people there. Dave is so kind-hearted and will continue to be an asset to the Bishopric and members of your ward.
Hopefully a good engine can be transplanted into your car soon and it can be released from the hospital so you can have it out running around again :)-
