New Calling

Dale was called to be the Second Counselor in the Bishopric today and was also ordained a High Priest. It was a wonderful Fast and Testimony Meeting as the counselor that was released bore his testimony and then Dale did and took the stand. There was a very strong spirit in the meeting. It was neat to look up at the stand and see our Stake Presidency and Bishopric, all wonderful men! We have known our Stake President, President Morris,  ever since we lived in Katy the first time, so about 22 years, he also was our bishop when we moved back to Katy.The First Counselor in the Stake is President Shurtz, he is one who gave me a blessing in Nauvoo when I found out my dad was dying, the blessing he gave me got me through a very tough time. The Second Counselor in the stake is President Bauer, he was also our Bishop at one time. President Bauer is the one who ordained Dale and set him apart. We were sad that Dale's dad was not able to travel to do the ordination, but glad that President Bauer could do it as he and Dale are good friends. I am glad all the kids were home for this event. I know Dale will serve diligently in this calling. I am blessed to have such a worthy priesthood holder in our home and to be my husband and father to our children.
Looks like the airplane building will take a little longer than expected.
