A Sad Thing Happened
Chris and I consider the Madera Ward in Sahuarita/Green Valley Arizona to be our home ward. We were there when it was created from 2 existing wards about 4 years ago and I served in the Bishopric, Chris served as the Primary President and as the ward grew close as a family, we grew close to them - like family. We always thought we would return to Arizona and leave on our mission from there. We decided in November that it wouldn't be financially or logistically a good thing to leave from Arizona, so on December 14, our records were moved to Idaho. The Island Park Ward is a very special ward, as well. We just never allowed ourselves to join in and become part of the family here.
