Carter's Hotel

Hello Dear Reader,
In July Steven Covey, who had been called to preside over the newly organized North Irish Mission, arrived in Scotland to be trained by President Brockbank. Since there were no living facilities in the Scottish Mission home and it would have been inconvenient for the Covey family to live in a hotel Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) Carter let the Coveys stay with them. Grandma tended the three Covey children while President and Sister Covey were taught their duties for several days.

This was the beginning of a long list of visitors that stayed in Grandpa and Grandma's home. It seemed that everyone that went to Scotland stayed with the Carters, invited or not. A few of the visitors included President Marion Hanks' two daughters and his secretaries, President Tanner's secretaries, President and Sister Selvoy Boyer (president of the London temple), Alice and Debbie Holland, and many of the missionaries from the British Mission who wanted to see Scotland before going home. You can see that Grandpa and Grandma were loved and made others feel welcome.
