Blanding Stakes Combined

 We have known for several months that we would have stake conference at this time. We were told that the Blanding West Stake would meet at 2:pm. Thur. we received word that we would be meeting with the Blanding Stake at 10:am and the North Chapel would be used as an overflow area with closed circut tv. We knew that Pres. Lemuel Redd was going to be released and they would be putting in a new stake presidency. We also guessed something else was going to happen. We heard different speculations. Today at stake conference combined the Blanding West Stake with the Blanding Stake and then after releasing both stake presidencies, called Michael Redd as the new stake president over Blanding Stake. His counselors are Joe Hurst and Douglas Christensen.

All of the high council in the Blanding West Stake have been released as well as all of the stake officers, but they will continue to function in their callings until the new stake presidency has a chance to reorganize things.

President Lem Redd has been quite sick for over 6 months, and Rob and Kathryn's family has been very concerned about him.  He has pulmonary aerterial hypertension, and none of his meds seem to be helping.  He is such a great guy, and super grandpa, we really feel bad about his condition.

Chris reported: Just to let you know CJ did his eagle project yesterday!  We have a little finish painting to do, but everything looks great!  He made a plinko game, bean bag toss, ring toss, tic tac toe, and a fish pond.  We'll send pictures when they are all done.  He got a lot of help from the scouts and ward.  The little kids and I made bean bags at home.  We are grateful the weather held out--we woke up to lots of snow.
