Reader voices: My early memories of the LDS Church in the United Kingdom
On Sunday morning, we had a testimony meeting. David bore his testimony publicly for the first time in his life. I was pleased to learn about David's faithful service in later years. Between 1976 and 1980, when I was serving as bishop in the Oldham Ward, David was the stake Young Men president and he enthusiastically promoted the cause of youth. From 1980 to the present day, I have lived in Chester, so I saw very little of David from then on. However, I am aware that he continued faithful service, including a term as a bishop.
The above experiences are just a few of the rich tapestry of memories I have accumulated during my years in the church.
