"Through your devoted service and willing sacrifice, your mission will become holy ground to you," Elder W. Christopher Waddell of the Seventy said during the October 2011 general conference. For Sister Arlette Hart Day and Sister Irene Eldridge Barton, who were mission companions 75 years ago, this statement still holds true.
"We call each other by our first names now, but we didn't for a long time," said Sister Day of the Bernina Ward, Bennion Utah West Stake. "We were very compatible."
"1938 was a wonderful year," recalled Sister Barton of the Twin Falls 15th ward, Twin Falls Idaho stake. "She was a wonderful companion, I learned a lot from her."
