It's me
« on: April 22, 2018, 06:54:56 pm »
I've been itching to tell you all for a week, but since I don't know who might lurk here I chose not too.

However, today I was sustained and set apart as the EQP - almost 25 years to the day from the last time.

Don't ask me, I only live here.

You'll do a great job, Andrew.  You have experience at the ward and stake levels.  You know how the High Priests and Elders work.  Now you get to put it all together.

Your ward is lucky to have you. You'll have great opportunities to serve.

You will do a magnificent job magnifying your calling.  Prayers going forth from this little old town in South Carolina where you still have deep roots and many friends.

Congratulations, and a bit different to the last time that you did it! Good luck with the calling

I am going to need a bit more than luck.

I am not the most liked person in my ward, and there are many in my quorum who, whilst sustaining me (mostly because it meant it wasn't them), are not enamoured with  my being called. I have only served in the ward for 2 years in the last 15 - my last calling being HPGL. And, even then I was a stake institute teacher as well.

So, yes, this is much different from last time round.
Don't ask me, I only live here.

A Nauvoodle in a place to have a good influence on individuals in their ward is never a bad thing. May this be a good experience for everyone :)

Ask them to pray for you, and to fully participate in the councils you hold to figure things out as a quorum.  Apologize to them for whatever it is they hold against you, and promise to work on the things you are led to work on.   They may then see that your desire is to servant leadership and sustain you and all of you can grow together.
