On Monday, the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles excommunicated a member of the Quorum of the Seventy. Those who remember him as their mission president had beautiful messages to share.

“I hope he knows that he's loved and he's touched so many people's lives,” Chris McKay said. “He touched my life. I don't think I'd be the person I am today without some of his influence.”

Chris McKay remembers his first day as an LDS missionary, seeing a “tall, imposing man, not quite sure what to make of him.”

That man was James Hamula, president of the Washington, D.C. South mission where McKay spent two years from 1996 to 1998.

“I just remember him as a caring, wonderful man who had a great love for the gospel,” said McKay, who now lives with his family in Woods Cross.
