Our Inner City Mission has been very busy this week for me. There have been some interesting Government issues. I have been trying to help a family get government housing assistance so they can get into an apartment. The family is finally at the top of the list. However, as part of the paperwork for this; the mother needed to give them her families Social Security information, all their Birth Certificates and valid Driver licenses. She had birth certificates for her children but neither her husband or her had certified copies. Her husband had a valid Drivers License but hers had expired. She has lost the Social Security Cards. In order to get a driver's license you have to have a birth certificate and your proof of Social Security Cards. In order to get replacements for your Social Security Cards you have to have a Valid driver's license. In order to get a Birth Certificate you need your Social Security card and your valid Drivers license. Are you confused now; I am. Through a few miracles; we almost have it put together. By next week if we don't get all of the paper work in they will lose their position in line for housing assistance. This is highly important since they are all most considered homeless.
Both my husband and I have been given new assignments at the Temple. I think this is good news?? We both enjoy working in the temple each Saturday morning. In fact it is our favorite place to be and our favorite Date. He was called to be the coordinator over about 85 men. He will be giving them assignments for the Saturday morning shift and coordinating the work. I was called to be the instructor for the new women ordinance workers and responsible for the training on Saturday morning. We are feeling overwhelmed with these assignments; but we look forward to the challenge. In my mind the only difficult part of the assignment at this moment is that we have to be at the temple on Saturday mornings at 3:45 am. I do not do mornings well!
Here is some LDS humor - I am sure other faiths have similar moments.
