The Name of the Church in Tahiti—1853


Image result for tahiti
Due to a change in government in Tahiti in 1853, persecution increased and it became necessary to change the name of the Church to avoid persecution. What was the name of the Church changed to?

a.      Abraham’s Church

b.      Moses’ Church

c.       Paul’s Church

d.      The Church of Enoch

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Salt Lake City

Built almost next door to the newly founded settlement of the Saints along the Wasatch Front, Camp Floyd, near Fairfield, Utah, was the largest pre—Civil War military base in the county in 1858. It was established by Col. Albert Sydney Johnston’s 3,000-man army sent to bring LDS settlers under government control. In 1985, a BYU archaeological excavation team uncovered the foundations of three buildings at the camp, yielding numerous artifacts including a large key, cannonballs, pipe fragments, military buttons, percussion caps, shoulder boards, hairbrushes, a toothbrush, knife handles, bottles, pitchers, cups, plates, and a Masonic emblem. The Masonic emblem was the most significant find because Camp Floyd was the site of the first Masonic lodge west of the Mississippi River.
