Elder Holland Dedicates New MTC Buildings

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles dedicated three newly renovated buildings at the Provo Missionary Training Center.

The dedicatory prayer was given as part of his devotional address on January 15, 2013, to missionaries at the center—including new MTC presidents and visitors’ center directors.

“We have just completed the Matthew Cowley Instructional Building, the Addison Pratt Residence Building, and the Dan Jones Residence Building, as part of the upgrading and renovation going on at this center,” he said. “In those three names we celebrate three of the greatest missionaries that have ever served in this dispensation.”
