When we were ready to leave our home for our first mission to report to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, we had a problem. The radio in our car had quit, and we wanted to have it working because we were driving our car to San Antonio, Texas, after our training at the MTC. The repairman was unable to have it repaired until a few days after we were to leave home. I asked if he could send it to me and I would install it myself. He agreed, and asked where he should send it. I told him to send it to the MTC in Provo, Utah, and gave him the address. He looked at the address, and said, "MTC? What is that?" Before I could tell him, he said, "That must stand for Military Training Center." I thought that this would be a good definition. Surely the MTC is the military training center for the Army of God.
