Kent Comes to Scotland

Hello Dear Reader,
After (Wesley) Kent Carter finished his proselyting mission he was able to be reunited with his parents and siblings by coming to Scotland. He was released from his proselyting mission in November and probably arrived in the British Isles around the end of November or the first of December. After a short rest he was called to serve as a building missionary and assigned to the Galashiels, Scotland project. He was in charge of remodeling an old mansion, making it into a chapel. He had three building missionaries who worked with him and with whom he had to contend. They gave him a bad time until he got tired of it and exclaimed, "Fe Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman." I'm sure this bold statement was followed by Kent's infectious laughter.

Golden Stettler, the project supervisor for the Paisley building, was over the Galashiels project but it was left up to Kent to supervise the work. Kent and the other three missionaries lived at the old house while they worked on it up until it was completed. Grandpa (Wesley) and Grandma (Mary) Carter were happy to have him only about an hour's drive away and Grandpa was very proud of him and his ability to take charge of the remodeling project.
