As I posted earlier, Alex Baugh from BYU came out to Missouri this past weekend as part of a tour he was doing with some students and faculty from Stanford University. He also spoke at the first David Whitmer Community Service Award Symposium, so Mom and I were able to visit with him for just a few minutes before his presentation. After his presentation, he had to run off to continue his tour.
The next day, I was scheduled to visit the Cameron 1st Ward for their fast & testimony meeting. Sitting on the stand before the meeting, Bishop Anderson leaned over to me and told me they had a group of visitors from California sitting in the back. Lo and behold, it was Alex and his group!
After a very edifying testimony meeting (in which a couple of the visitors shared their testimonies), Alex and I were able to visit for a few minutes. Truman Pratt was also there, and he has known Alex for many years ever since he and his family lived in Utah. The three of us had a great time visiting in the foyer before we were off to our next meetings. Before we split up, Alex said he had to get a picture of us to show to Bob, who was teaching his first class as an adjunct faculty member at BYU this week. What a great guy!
