For the past year I have loved our new ward. I got called to be a visiting teaching supervisor when we first got moved into the Arrowhead Ward and have enjoyed it. I love going to gospel doctrine, and being in Relief Society. I feel as though I had found my comfort zone. NOTICE THE PAST TENSE USED IN THE ABOVE SENTENCE. On Tuesday I got home from picking Tanner up from karate and Justin had a smirk on his face. He held up the phone and said "guess who called?"I shrugged and he said Brother Dow wanted to meet with us that night if possible. From the look on Justin's face I immediately knew that it was for me not him, he was way too relaxed. My mom was coming for dinner anyways so she stayed a few extra minutes while we went to the church. Brother Dow sat me down in the chair and called me to be the 1st counselor in the primary presidency. I reluctantly accepted and headed home where I cried for a good hour or so. Today, however, I woke up feeling better and ready to be sustained and get started. I feel very overwhelmed but sitting in that room listening to those sweet voices sing the old presidency's favorite songs I began to have a change of heart and thinking that I had better pay attention and learn whatever it is I have been put in there to learn. I am excited to get to know the sister's that I am serving with. They all seem to be ready to serve and they, unlike me, have done this before. So here I go jumping in feet first. I hope they have really big life boat for me and all my inadequacies.
