So, at the end of November I was laid off from my job–just in time for the holidays. Needless to say, it was a fairly stressful, rough time, but at the same time, we were really taken care of very well, by our extended families, my local ward, and even some of the government programs.

I was able to find some short-term work, and have now got a one-year position with the LDS Church, so at the moment we are doing very well. The job is about a half hour away, so we’ve been getting used to having a commute, but it really isn’t bad, especially considering having no work at all.

I wanted to say thank you very much to everyone who helped us out while we were in need. We were able to have a very enjoyable time during the holidays, and we were able to keep up with our bills and everything else because of your help. Thank you!
