Elder Kent F. Richards of the Second Quorum of the Seventy, accompanied by his wife Marsha, visited the mission on Monday, December 30, 2013. He and his wife addressed the entire mission gathered together at the Redlands California stake center. It was a wonderful opportunity to be instructed by Elder and Sister Richards, as well as to learn from President and Sister Van Cott. The Spirit was strong throughout the conference. What a great way to welcome in the new year - with a firm resolve to be better instruments in the Lord's hands in teaching His truths in the California Redlands Mission.
