The speaker was Matthew O. Richardson, second counselor in the Sunday School presidency. What a special experience we had that evening. This picture, on the left, is the stone which caught the eye of a young man, President David O. McKay while on his mission in Scotland. For those of us our age and older we might recall this saying, written at the top and bottom of the stone, "Where E're Thou Art, Act Well Thy Part". This saying on this stone helped to inspire President David O. McKay and his companion to rededicate themselves to work harder and wiser during their missions. See story below.
Our week in the MTC was one of the best weeks of our married lives. What we learned and what we experienced is beyond words. The Spirit that we felt and the association with all the Senior Missionary couples is something that we will remember and treasure for the rest of our lives. We encourage any of our senior friends, if you are even thinking or considering a mission, do all you can to make this happen. It has been wonderful so far and we are looking forward to put into practice all we learned over the next 12-18 months.
