Heber C. Kimball

Pioneer  William Rydalch was walking down a Salt Lake street one day when he met Heber C. Kimball. What did Brother Kimball ask Brother Rydalch to give him from his pocket?

a.      $5

b.      $50

c.       $500

d.      $5000

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Build houses

In Nauvoo the members [Relief Society] helped build houses, provide food, make clothing, and otherwise care for the sick and needy. In Utah, economic ventures were undertaken by the women of the Church, with the Relief Society establishing cooperative stores, developing silk-manufacturing industries, and arranging for storage of many thousands of bushels of wheat. After the First World War, President Woodrow Wilson, when visiting Utah, called upon Mrs. Emmeline B. Wells, the general president of the Relief Society, to thank her for the wheat given the federal government at the beginning of the war.
