Called to Serve, Counsel, Pray, Guide, Teach, Mend, Organize, Cry, Inspire, Lead...the list goes on. Today my Dad was called to serve as Bishop of our home ward. In a funny and weird way I always knew he would be a Bishop. I look up to my Dad for many reasons and today I know why. Even though we are far away we sustain you Dad and know you will do many great things for the Modesto 1st ward. And just to think that in 4 months you will be my Bishop and your Grand kids' too. We all love you and will pray for you...You are going to need it.
