Update....

Took the calling, I am not the new Compassionate/Humanatarian leader in our ward. I have 3 words, Pray For Me. I am still not sure what I am doing. This is a brand new presidency, so they don't know what they are doing either. SO I am learning as I go.

Not or now? 3 wards? I thought just your ward? Is it new? I am praying that you survive it.

That sounds weird being over three wards. I don't think that is usual.
Are you sure that's what they said? Maybe the Millville neighborhoods are so used to being and doing things together, that when a funeral or something happens they have people from the other wards wanting to help too. Let me know more when you find out more. I definately think it might not really be that way. Weird.

OHHH! Now I see! tamy lead me astray. It is not 3 WARDS, but three WORDS! OK... Now I feel better. I did not think the church changed that much from one stake to the next. Don't worry, you can do it. The key is to get a good committee behind you. Then they help take part of the burden. Jordan's Jennifer has had this calling and would be a fountain of info. Talk to her. Love you!

Charity,

I was the Compassionate Service leader for 2 1/2 years - they put me in after we'd lived in the ward for a month. Honestly, if you have questions, I can help, but the one thing that I can tell you is this: that was the best/hardest calling I've ever had. The only reason is is hard is because you get very frusterated with people not being willing to serve. The reason it is the best is because no matter what you are going through - someone else is having a harder time and you get to see that every day. It certainly put things into perspective for me. Call me, we'll chat.
P.S. At the halfway point, our ward merged into the largest ward in our stake - over 670 people - and that lasted for 6 months before they split us! Good times!
