New Ward

We finally attended our new ward. As we found a parking space we noticed that there weren't very many parked cars. Everyone including Dan we doubting me when I told them our ward started at 11. We go and sit in the chapel and look around. There still weren't a lot of people and I thought they were all running late. When primary came around, our 4 kids made up the other half of primary. We have a lot of "more matured adults" than younger adults. It is a very nice ward. I think that it is great that my kids can see how different ward work. I think we were all expecting a big ward because we are in a city and we came from a big ward. Primary runs differently in this ward. There are no Jr and Sr primary.My older girls and 1 or 2 more kids make up Sr. primary. So there is primary for all the kids and than Sunday school. When we were leaving my husband said he had a chance to talk with our bishop. Bishop told Dan that the whole ward fast and prayed that they would expand their attendance in the ward. That same month, we moved in to our apartment, and another in-active family started coming back to church. So our ward were so grateful we moved in.
Being a small ward, I know that my family and I can bring more to this ward. I think I am going to really enjoy this ward.

get ready for those callings!! I love smaller wards--we are in a very small, rural town, but our ward is actually nice sized.
