Approximately one month ago, Kam and I were stopped by the executive secretary at the end of Sacrament meeting and told us the Bishop wanted to talk to us following church. I thought to myself, "Oh no, Kam is finally getting a calling when I need him to watch the baby during Primary." I went through the rest of church working on Primary stuff, getting our activity ready, checking on classes, etc. During this time I ran into the 1st and 2nd counselor in the hallway. We began to chat and I started trying to convince them to tell me what the Bishop wanted to talk to us about. I knew the Young Men's presidency was needing to fill some positions, so I was slightly worried that Kam would be called to that. Of course the counselors wouoldn't crack, and I was left to figure out in my mind how he was going to juggle school, Young Men's and home life up until we met with the Bishop.
We walked into his office and participated in small talk. He started asking us how long we were planning on being here, how things were going in Primary, at work and in school, just chit chat. Then he hit us with it, the calling was for me, and they called me to be the new Young Women's President. I was floored. "Are you serious?" and "Ok, Ok" was all I could muster. So, last Sunday they finally sustained and set apart myself and my presidency. I think it will be a good group and I am excited to get to know the girls. We are having our first presidency meeting today and I think we have a lot of good ideas.
I am sad to leave my Primary kids. I have really enjoyed my time in Primary and have learned to love those kids. I know the new President will do a great job, but in a way it's bitter sweet to leave Primary behind.
So, if any of you have any positive suggestions in how to make my time in Young Women's successful, please suggest away!
