When we come to meeting we should sit very still and look at the speaker and not turn our head around to see who comes in. she ask the children who was the first prophet in this dispensation. And if we are good and pray and be obedient to our parents we will raise up to be good men and women and said she was going to devide us into to classes and Sister Mary A.
