David Lewis


What did the Prophet Joseph Smith promise young 12-year old David Lewis at the time of his baptism in May of 1830?


A)     He would become the Church’s second missionary (Samuel Smith was first)

B)     His parents would eventually join the Church

C)     He would be protected on his way home

D)     He would become the body guard to Porter Rockwell



Yesterday’s answer:

D    A Presbyterian meetinghouse



In 1843 it was decided to build a Seventies Hall in Nauvoo. During construction a tornado leveled the walls. Brigham Young convinced the Seventies to re-build, but this time make the walls one brick thicker. At the completion of the Hall, it housed a library on the upper floor along with a museum of “curiosities” brought to Nauvoo by returning missionaries. After the Saints left Nauvoo for the west the Seventies Hall was used as a Presbyterian meetinghouse and latter a school.
