Brian's New Calling

The 1st Counselor in our ward, the Santa Monica 3rd Ward, was called as a Stake High Counselor this past week which left a vacancy in the Bishopric. Brian was released as the 2nd Counselor and called to serve as the 1st Counselor to the Bishop. Mike Hammari is the new 2nd Counselor. Following the pattern of the past few years Mike is one of single fellows in the ward. After all of the callings were shifted around the Bishop commented that the Lord sure must have a sense of humor to assemble a group like ourselves. :)

Brian's Good News

Brian decided to start the wheels turning to get back to school to get his MBA. He met with the director of the Loyola Marymount University MBA program this past Wednesday and asked what he could do to prepare for a summer enrollment and the director said, "why not start on Monday". So he took the GMAT (cold turkey) on Friday and begins classes Monday the 14th. CRAZY!
