Elder Arthur Lawrence Evert

Contributor: dayle Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Dad filled his mission in the Southern States Mission. While he was there his father, Arthur Francis Evert filled a mission also. He and his companions traveled the country side meeting and teaching without purse or script. Dad told us they were walking many miles one day and were thirsty and hungry. They stopped to ask a local pig farmer if he could spare a drink and something to eat for two tired Elders. He said he would. He then held a shotgun on them and directed them to the pigs trough. He instructed them to kneel and partake. They looked at each other, bowed their heads, and asked the Lord to bless their food and ate. The Lord made it palatable and satisfying. They thanked the farmer and left. They knew that the Lord was with them. Other kind people put them up in barns and in their homes and listened to their messages joyfully. They did not have apartments and cars or even bikes like today. Dad met our mother while he was on his mission in Corpus Christi, Texas, Her mother invited the missionaries for dinner often and they helped them in the little branch. When Dad was going home, he asked Thelma if he could write to her. He went home to Salt Lake City. For nine months, Thelma and Lawrence corresponded thorough letters. He proposed in a letter and she accepted in a letter. They never had a date. Dad arrived back in Texas the day before the wedding. They were married by the presiding priesthood authority of the church witnessed by his father, Arthur Francis Evert, who was still on a mission there, and her mother Amazon River Evans Ballard. They boarded a train back to Salt Lake City where they were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple for All eternity.

Life timeline of Edith Thelma Evert (Ballard)

1918
Edith Thelma Evert (Ballard) was born on 4 Jan 1918
Edith Thelma Evert (Ballard) was 12 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Edith Thelma Evert (Ballard) was 22 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Edith Thelma Evert (Ballard) was 40 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed.
