Just a quick update on the fireside next Sunday night. It should be a great evening. I have been asked to talk about Ammon and tell what has happened to him in his lifetime (it will have to be a very quick re-cap) so people will understand why he like he is and so they can see what challenges he has and how they can help him and others with disabilities. Matt Bauman will also speak. He is a middle linebacker for the BYU football team. He is a member of Gillian's bishopric. I got to meet him today and was very impressed with him. There will be a couple of surprises for Ammon that night. Brother Merrill, a member of our bishopric will conclude the meeting. Primary children will be singing "I'll Walk with You" and we will have lots and lots of goodies to eat - a lot of chocolate.
This is an open fireside for anyone that would like to attend. It will be held in our chapel. The tree they are taking up for the Festival of Trees will be on display as will the fantastic quilt they have made and that the BYU Football team has signed (all 140 players and coaches). This has truly been a ward event with so many people involved it's mind boggling. We invite all to come for a fun evening.
