Lift Where you Stand......

President Uchtdorf gave a tremendous talk in our last General Conference earlier this month. It was entitled "Lift Where you Stand.....". In his talk, he referred to a brother named John Rowe Moyle who was a Stonecutter. In President Uchtdorf's words "His hands carved the words 'Holiness to the Lord' that stand today as a golden marker to all who visit the Salt Lake Temple." "John did not do this for the praise of man". "Neither did he shirk his duty, even though he had every reason to do so".

Brother Moyle did not live very far from our homes here in Highland. He lived at 606 East 770 North in Alpine Utah. He walked the 22 miles each way for over 20 years to complete his assigned work on the Salt Lake Temple.

Please view this video clip about this great Disciple of the Lord:

May we all chose to follow the example of the Savior Himself: "Whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant" (Matthew 20:27).

In his parting comments, President Uchtdorf stated:

"Brethren, may we cease to aspire and cease to retire!" "Every Calling is an Opportunity to Serve and Grow". A calling is "An Assignment Only You Can Perform"
