His labors in the Church commenced when West Layton Ward, Davis Stake, Utah, was organized, he being chosen second counselor in the conjoint Young Men's and Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Association; later he was chosen president of the former, which position he held until released to take a mission to the Southern States, on which he departed Jan. 13, 1907, in company with several other Elders. He was assigned to labor in the southwest Virginia conference, which was later transferred to the Eastern States Mission, laboring in this conference until released and returned home Feb. 27, 1899. Soon after arrival he was called to act as a home missionary in the Stake and Ward teacher. He filled these places for about a year when he was married to Olive E. Carbudge March 14, 1900.
