Today at church we had an unusual new member. Moses is a young man from Salt Lake City. He is 16 years old and was chosen as 1 of 30 high school students from across the nation to serve in the US Page Program. Moses attends Brighton High School and, as a Junior, was an All-State football player. The program he is in is highly regulated and leaves them with very little free time which is good! These young people wake up at 5AM and take classes until 9AM. They often work as Pages until late in the evening and then have to do homework. On Saturdays they go on history excursions. We will be able to get him out to church on Sunday and we may be able to get him to attend the Friday institute class. Sister Anthony will be working with our area director and Brighton High School's Seminary Principal to try and get Mosses seminary credit. Our ward is technically not open to Mosses because he is under 18, however, we will involve him in the ward because the family ward he should attend is not well equipped to handle and support a young man in his situation. We look forward to working with him.
We feel a new zeal for missionary work - especially in our ward. The excitement is building and the members of the missionary committee are working harder, and smarter. We are grateful to be here and we are "Living the Dream!"
PS. What was the score of the Superbowl?
