Cause for Concern

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wesley) Carter knew that the new stake would be organized the following morning so he was concerned about what to do regarding counselors and clerks. He asked, "President Tanner, what do I do about counselors and clerks as I know none of the brethren in the Paisley Ward?" It was suggested that he might work with Bill Graham as First Counselor, Sammy Wylie as Second Counselor, and Brother Martin as ward clerk.

Of course Grandpa didn't know these men so concluded that if it was President Tanner's recommendation to have them assist him he would be happy to do so. Grandpa was then told to go out that night, get acquainted with these men, and ask them if they would serve with him in the Paisley Ward bishopric. When the meeting ended it was eleven o'clock pm.

Grandpa got home at 2:30 am after he had called Brother Wylie and they had gone together to meet with the other men. This call to serve as bishop was way different than when he had been called the first time.
