We didn’t stay the night in St. Andrews; instead we went to Perth, which was Richard’s first area. In Perth we met with Mary Harding, who Richard had met very early in his mission. Mary is a lot of fun and she told us all about her life; we ended up talking to her for about 3 hours.
In Perth, we stayed with the Tom and Anne Crook, who live in a beautiful, well-preserved (over 100 years old) home. Tom and Anne joined the church in the early '60s and they have been the backbone for the LDS community in Perth ever since.
