Prest E. R. Snow then said: We should observe order, the time is not far distant when angels will administer personally to faithfull saints and we cannot behold their faces of celestial beings unless we try and perfect ourselves, and for the purpose that we may enjoy these blessings which our father has in store for the faithfull we have to cultivate our habits and we should strive to live above these low habits which humanity is heir to; when we worry and feel that our circumstances are hard we feel unhappy; but when we let our minds dwell upon the blessings we enjoy, we feel good; the Lord pours his spirit upon us and we feel encouraged, I feel pleased with the reports of the teachers, the teachers should live their religion, so that when they are called, to administer to the Saints, they can exercise faith. I should now like to hear from my sisters.
