A)     Joseph Smith Sr.

B)     Emma Smith

C)     Joseph Smith

D)     Brigham Young

Yesterday’s answer:

(A)     That the teachers and priest be more thorough in their home teaching

During the Missouri years of the Church Home teaching was directed by the Teachers quorum. In Nauvoo, this assignment shifted to the Priest quorum. Brigham Young only wanted the “best men” in Utah. Each Home Teacher and his companion could be expected to visit 8 to 20 families a month. Interesting, it was Brigham Young’s death bed wish that the priest and teachers be more thorough in this assignment.
