July 17, 2016 Choices that bring joy

"Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people; for all the earth is mine>"
Exodus 19:5
 If we choose to do what is right, if we will be responsible in our choices, then the results of our choices will bring joy and happiness to our souls, for the Lord has told us, "I the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end."
Doctrine and Covenants 76:5

 July 5, 2016 Mission Leadership Council

Elder McCallson and Elder Osterhoudt needed a new home. 
So on Friday we packed them up, cleaned and moved them to a new apartment.

 Sister Leach and Sister Kappel currently assigned in Paul, called the Mission Office and requested some proselyting materials.  Since we just happened to be passing by our on way to Orem, Utah we stopped to feed them breakfast and to drop off the materials.
 We just couldn't resist!
On our way to the Open House for our Florida Orlando Mission President Micahel Berry and his wife, Beth, in Draper, Utah we stopped by to get reacquainted with our old friend, In and Out.

Elder Busath had the opportunity to travel to Hagerman to take care of a few housing needs.  It was an all day trip, but he loved it!

More Changes...
July 1, 2016 we recently participated in the transition and moving forward of the Idaho Boise Mission as a result of the Mission boundary changes in the Idaho Boise, Nampa, Twin Falls and Pocatello Missions.  To be honest it was a little painful, but it continues to get better and better each day.

On Thursday, July 14, 2016
We were informed that due to the significant current and anticipated future growth of the Church in our area, it was time for a new stake to be created.  This change will affect the northeast boundary of the Bainbridge Ward, US! An informational meeting was held to explain the changes. (Probably to cut down on the weeping and whaling).

Who is affected:  the households living in the square mile from Black Cat to Ten Mile and Chinden to McMillan
When:  last day for these members to attend the Bainbridge Ward is July 31.  Meeting at Star Stake Center on Park Lane and Floating Feather at 6 pm on July 31 for official reorganization
Where:  On August 7, these members will attend with their new ward, the Verona Ward at 9 a.m. in the Bainbridge building
New stake organization:  at Star Stake Conference on August 21.  More information will be provided by the Verona Ward bishop, Bishop Piscione.

It appears that the Lord's kingdom grows significantly in our part of His vineyard. We just wish that it didn't happen quite so soon. We love the people in our ward, our empty -nester group and our Primary class.

A wise daughter quoted this to me recently. We are not sure when she got so smart, but we are grateful for her wise council.

 Elder Busath decided to spend his Father's Day gift cards on some new garage shelves!
