Elder Weiss and his parents gave me a necklace and Dell a paper weight made out of high end motor components.  The Weisses manufacture components for race cars.  Sister Weiss made the necklace I'm wearing.  The center is a rotor which is used in an oil pump.  Through the years PRC oil pumps have played a role in 5 Nascar Cup Championships.  I loved the gospel analogies.  Rotors only work together as pairs -- companionships, marriage relationships.  Rotors are manufactured to exact specifications -- Yea, and they did obey and observe to perform every word of command with exactness, that I may be strict in the plain road.  Rotors must be within tolerances or they are rejected.  Adjustments are made at the machine if tolerances are not being held -- repent and turn ye unto the Lord.  Rotors will not function properly if exposed to dirt and debris.  Filters are used to protect them -- Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord.  Rotors must have a coating of oil to protect them -- Put on the whole armour of God.  Sets of rotors, working together in pairs help circulate oil, which is the lifeblood of an engine -- Sets of missionaries working together in districts and zones "circulate"gospel principles, the lifeblood of the Church.  "Missionary work is the lifeblood of the Church and the lifesaving blessing to all who accept its message." Ronald A. Rasband
The paper weight is a merged collector which is an integral component of a performance exhaust system.  One of the primary functions is to safely carry exhaust gases away from the engine.  These types of systems are used in all serious forms of power sports.  The pen holder is made from PRC 4 into 1 collector stock commonly used for LeMans series sport cars.  Gospel applications:  We do not generate priesthood power, but by merging our humility, faith, hope, and charity we can use it efficiently to move the work forward.  Merging our faith and prayers with others increases our ability to draw upon the powers of heaven.  Merging the attributes of Christ into lives gives us increased power to move our lives forward.
