There was a lot of speculation and whispered voices at church this morning. We were told two weeks ago that our two wards/congregations (South Bend & Mishawaka) were being split into three. Mickey and, by association, I have been asked many questions over the last two weeks about what was going to happen. We were under orders not to talk (and we didn't know all the details). So we didn't, much to people's dismay.
So here's what happened. Mishawaka ward gave up some of its members. South Bend ward gave up its name as well as some people to add to the afore mentioned members to make the "new" South Bend ward. Are you following so far? Then the original South Bend ward became the Norte Dame ward. The bishopric from the original SB ward went to the ND ward so Mickey still has his calling as second counselor. I know totally confusing. Maybe this will clear it up. Here's the map.
Later today Mickey asked Kade what he thought about going to the Notre Dame ward. He replied, "The Notre Dame ward rocks!" At least one of us is excited about the changes.
Oh, wait. One good thing, we have the 9:00 a.m. time slot.
