Ammon passed his interview with the bishop last night and so on Sunday, Oct. 14, he will be ordained a deacon. For any of the boys that live close by, you are invited to join in the ordination which will be during priesthood around 1 p.m.
The bishop had a big grin on his face after he excused Ammon and then called us in to his office. He said that Ammon answered every question correctly and is definitely ready to serve in this priesthood capacity. Ammon had one worried question that he asked the bishop. He asked the bishop what would happen to him (Ammon) if he spilled a tray of water or bread on the floor. The bishop reasurred him that it would be ok and that he didn't need to worry about that because he was sure Ammon would learn to pass the trays without spilling anything.
Ammon will get a tray to fit on his power chair made by Shriner's Hospital. That should be done on the 16th of this month. It's a great missionary tool -- most personnel at Shriner's are not LDS and so we got to explain why we needed this tray. Ammon will be able to set the sacrament trays on his tray so as not to spill anything. The ward has also ordered the lighter plastic trays just for Ammon.
They will assign the boys the responsiblity of helping Ammon get where he needs to get and will also have assignments for the boys to help him in scouts. Ammon will do what he can with scouts, but it will basically be for the commraderie, not the merit badges.
This was the entry in my book of notes that recognizes God's hand in day-to-day events written last night.
