It was Christmas of 1939, and Ida and Viola, my two sisters, were working in Salt Lake City.
The next thing I knew I received a letter from Ida telling me of her experience that morning. The LaGrande 2nd Ward, of which I was a member and from which I was leaving for my Mission, gave me a farewell party as we customary in those days.
My brother Alex and his wife had not been to the Temple to have their marriage sealed since she had joined the Church a few years before.
Those of us going down to Salt Lake were Alex and Mildred, their two sons, Richard and Gerald, my sister Viola, and Dorothy Richeson, a friend, and myself. Then, Monday morning, I checked into the Mission Home on State Street for the two weeks training they gave all Missionaries prior to their leaving for their fields of labor.
Previous to my going on my Mission and during the time we were making plans to go, I had somewhat of a heavy feeling. Then, the morning of April 25th came and I found myself, along with all, or a lot, of the other Missionaries getting ready to leave on various trains for their mission fields. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, we were met at the Union Station by the District President of the Los Angeles District, Ferris R. Later in the afternoon, I took the Pacific Electric Train out to Belflower where I met Elder Archibald, my new companion.
For the first few days of our stay in Belflower, I got to meet a lot of people who were members of the Branch. We often went with President Visser to Long Beach to Leadership meetings as that was their stake Headquarters. Of course, I was ready in the alloted time and on my way to Downey to work with Elder Ray Fransen.
Another interesting experience we had was one Sunday when they were having Stake Conference in the South Los Angeles Stake. After visiting with him all afternoon and again in the evening, after Conference was over, Theron took us home.
In a couple of weeks we called back to see if she had read the book and to pick it up if she was through with it.
After he left, we went out to Sister Mossa€™s place to break the news to her and her husband, because Elder Holt also was being transfered to Compton, California, and there would be no missionaries in Downey at all. Saturday morning, October 12, President Hagey, my District President, came to Downey to take me to Los Angeles to report to President MacDonald for my instructions about the new district. While in Los Angeles getting instructions from the President, I got to visit some with the other missionaries at headquarters. President Hagey and I stayed in Los Angeles that night and the next morning he drove me out to Riverside, which I greatly appreciated, as I did not have a car then. We soon moved our headquarters of the Mission (District) to a better location, and the Missionaries started coming into the District. As soon as I had assigned all of the Elders to their various fields of labor, I wrote to all the Branch Presidents in the District to introduce myself. One of the outstanding experiences I had in that District was holding Cottage Meetings in Hemitt. Needless to say, I was a little nervous also with the minister sitting in the back of the living room staring at me. A few months later, after I had been transferred up to the Bakersfield District, I received a letter from President Choate, saying that the Rev. I remember the Easter Sunrise Service we held in Hemitt that year as a District Conference. With two carloads of missionaries from our district plus one carload from the mission office, for we invited them out to speak at our conference, plus all of the people from over the district, we had a real conference.
At the end of the first month I was out in Riverside, which was the day before I was to expect Mr. About a month later I was down in the Los Angeles area and went out to call on them for a visit. On one of those subsequent visits I remember telling her that I hated to see them wasting their time outside of the Church. Once, President Durham wrote to me to see if I would come down and speak in the Downey Branch for their Sacrament Meeting.
She had originally resigned as pastor of the local United Brethren Church there in Holiday, California when she first decided to join ours; then after backing out of being baptized she went back and accepted the position again.
With this introduction, they all commenced talking at once telling me what a bad thing I was doing, disturbing people who were happy in their own religion until they heard me. The last time I saw her in the mission field was about three months before I was to be released to go home. While in Riverside, I had the privilege of baptizing a Sister James and her six children into the Church.
I have surely been blessed to have the opportunity to meet many of my friends from the mission field. Another interesting experience was when President Blood (Verna€™s next Mission President) called me into his office one day to talk about the Imperial Valley District.
Once, when I had gone down there to take over the office from President Burton, I toured the district and visited all the branches in it. While down there we accompanied one of the local brethren over to Yuma, Arizona to the branch there to speak in Church.
I met some wonderful friends down in the Imperial Valley; President Cyril Gardner, and President Lunsford of the El Centro and Brawley Branches. It was here we met and stayed with a wonderful family by the name of Arthur Lee {LNa€™s note: This man, Arthur Lee was a first cousin to Rhoda Jane Perkins Wakefield, being a descendant of Mosiah Hancock}.


At this time of my life my hair was getting pretty thin in front, and in her conversation she turned to Elder Richards and asked him if he was out of high school.
As the month of June was drawing to a close, I received a letter from President Blood transferring me up to organize a new district in Bakersfield, California. They immediately started to explain to me that a€?Eldera€? was not their name, that it was their title. Both Elders Grant Fisher and Glen Sorenson turned out to be really good missionaries and both served as District Presidents before their missions were finished.
That evening I held a meeting with the missionaries and gave them their assignments as to where they would labor. After all the elders were assigned and working, I took three Elders with me and drove to Bishop. One day the two Lady Missionaries who were working out in Oildale, came in to the office asking if I would go the next week with them to a Cottage Meeting they had scheduled. We met regularly every week with her in her home and enjoyed the Spirit of the Lord to a very great degree.
It had grown into a habit each week that after our subject matter was completed and we had taught them that part of the Gospel plan we had decided on, that Dorothy would bring in some sort of refreshment such as pie and ice cream. When I arrived in San Francisco it was raining and nearly evening by the time I found the Mission Home. That night and the next day I spent time with President Ellsworth outlining what he had in mind for me to do.
On my way up to San Francisco I received a letter as I was going through Bakersfield, from Clayton M. The last week of my Mission, after having visited all of the districts in the Mission except Reno, Nevada, President Ellsworth called me into his office for a visit. Then, he told me to go to Reno, Nevada, hold the Conference there and instruct the Missionaries. I was in Reno, Nevada when my release took effect, and with instruction to stop in Salt Lake to be set apart as a Counselor in the Bishopric, it would not allow for me to go back down to Bakersfield to baptize Dr. The next morning, which was Sunday, I went out to go to Church with my sister and brother-in-law, Paul and Helen Zaugg. The first of the week, or Monday morning, I went into the Church Offices to be interviewed and report my mission.

Just wanted to drop you a very quick line to say today's Domestic Abuse conference was excellent, one of the best conferences I have been at, some really engaging speakers and really meaty topics - the legal aspects as covered by Lesley Thomson, Morag Driscoll, and the debaters at the end, were really useful. Taylor of the First Council of the Seventy, I was asked if I wanted to go to New Zealand, being as that was where my Mother had been made a convert to the Church and had lived all her growing years until she was about twenty one years old. Moss got a little tired of their conduct also, for she reached over and slapped one of the women on the arm who was doing most of the talking and said, a€?Shut up!a€? She told them if they would just listen to me I could explain everything.
She had a sister who had been at her home a couple of times when we were there teaching them.
Button asked me when I entered with Elder Crandall was, a€?If I should decide I wanted to join your church and asked to, would I have to deny all the spiritual experiences I have had?a€? My answer to her was, a€?Our Church was founded on revelation, which in, and of itself, is a highly spiritual experience.a€? That seemed to strike her very pleasantly and that night we started a very congenial, friendly relationship.
Lyle Wynn came in to take my place as District President, and I left along with Elder Sorenson who was transferred with me.
Button: As a young girl she met her husband while in a seminary studying for the ministry of the Methodist Church.


Button and her membership in the Church: Each year for two or three years she would lock up her office and go up to Salt Lake to do Temple work and research in genealogy.

She is a current member of the Scottish Civil Justice Council and holds a Master of Laws in Law and Governance from Dundee University. Archibald, was transfered into the Mission office, and Elder Lamar Fairbanks came in to replace him. The next day we went with Brother Lee out into the country to visit a man, a non-member of the Church.
The right not to be subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment is of particular interest, including its application in the socio-economic sphere.
More widely, Elaine has interests in the protective human rights obligations of states, the right to human rights education, and the concept of human dignity in human rights education. She said she didna€™t want to have anything to do with the Church, but as she had a brother in the mission field she wanted to do something for us because of him. Moss came over to the door and took my hand, in their presence and with tears in her eyes told me, in a voice loud enough for them all to hear, how bad she felt for me, a servant of God, being persecuted in her home. She did this for sometime and eventually the same feeling came over her, and she said she knew it was not true. Button and told her that she should go ahead and have one of the other Elders baptize her and not wait any longer. Moss answered the door, I could see she was all ready to leave the house, so I apologized and said I would run on. They had been through the Salt Lake Temple and had their marriage sealed for time and all eternity.
