New Callings

We had a wonderful Sabbath today.  We are serving in the Crystal Palace Ward of the Wandsworth Stake. We meet in a small Catholic School.  There are about 200 members in our ward and we get about 45-50 people out each week.  They have land to build a new chapel on, but we need at least 80 people to come out regularly.  We are going to do our best to make that happen.  Today, I was called to be Young Women's President.  I have 4 potential YW and 1 Laurel comes.  Terry was called to serve as 2nd Councilor in the Bishopric.  The Bishop and his Councilors are also the Young Men's Presidency. There are 8 potential YM with 3 coming out.  We have also been asked to be in charge of the Ward's Roadshow. We have a fun idea that could be done with only a few people, but we are hoping on getting more out.  After Church today, we had dinner with the Bishop and his sweet wife and then went out on visits, trying to get more of the youth to be involved.  We perform on November 23rd.  We work best under pressure :-)

The members of the Ward have been fantastic.  Everyone is SO NICE and seems genuinely happy to have us there.  We are grateful for the chance to work with them and serve in anyway that we can.


  1. Lucky Young women and ward to have you both working there. Loved the picture of your "little" flat. It's awesome (well the kitchen is a bit small), and we're so happy for you. I agree with you on driving in London. It's downright scary! So glad you can get to the buses quickly and walk to other places (yea for exercise.)
    All is well with the ward and our family.

    Thanks for keeping us posted.

    Love, Sue We miss you.

  2. I loved the story of the nice young man on the bus. I was touched by the spirit, wishing more of the young ladies in this area dressed more modestly. Sadly, there are young women in our ward that could use a strong lesson in modest dress, like, its not just for Sundays.

    We sure love you,
