a New day

So it has been about a week since I wrote anything. This is due to finally moving in with my family in Denver and having Bryan home for a week. He wanted to do Fun things and so sitting on the computer was not an option. So this week i should be back up to par on my blogging since Bryan started his new job today. We shall see how it goes. He will be cutting up dead peoples bones. I know I know a DEFINITE conversation starter when someone asks what do you do for a living.? His is working for a company called Allosource which takes allo graphs of skin and bone tissue to use in operations instead of metal or synthetic things. This way you can have bone and actual tissue for operations! It is a great learning situation for Bryan and I know he is excited.

So being in a new ward you get new callings...at least we did. However the ward does not technically even have our records yet...but the stake and ward presidencies didn't seem to mind. Bryan is second counselor in the Elders quorum and I am second counselor in the YW. We both just came from these organizations in Fort Collins. I was second counselor in YW and Bryan was Elders quorum secretary. I guess the Lord was just preparing us in Fort Collins to work much goodness here in Denver. there is MUCH more opportunity to serve here since there are fewer people and many more people who are converts and need all the help they can get. I am excited to work with this group of girls... My sister Tess included. It is a little bit different in the sense that all the girls meet together ALWAYS since there is not enough girls to split into age groups. So it will be a little while before I get the hang of how they do things.

Bryan is working with a guy named Jon Daniel who is from Africa and hopes to return there one day. It will be a teaching experience for him so he can be a leader once he goes back to Africa. So the stake president told Bryan to teach Jon Daniel all he knows and help him as much as he can. So I know things will be good. We have even met a few young couples that we think will turn out to be good friends! We are excited!!!!

That is all the is happening around here...hope its good in your neck of the woods...as Al Roker would say!

I am glad you are getting settled in Denver. Bryan's job sounds really interesting and I hope he enjoys it. You sound really happy and relaxed. Tell your parents I said hi.

WOW, i don't think i could do Bryan's job. But i'm glad there are people like him that can do it. You do sound really happy, so that is good! Oh, and that's how my YW group was in Alhambra when i taught in there. Kind of weird, but it's fun to get to know all the girls. :) Glad you are making new friends! We need to do that! lol.
