A Very Unusual Request

Image result for old tiem sailing ship
What did Maria Gill Clayfield and the other Saints ask the ship captain in Liverpool just prior to their voyage to America in 1868?

a.      That he lower his sails on Sundays

b.      That he and his crew join the Saints for Sunday services

c.       That he would sail his condemned ship once more so they could make it to America

d.      That he would be baptized prior to sailing to America

Yesterday’s answer:

(D)   “Beautiful young prophet”

Pope John Paul II received his copy of the Book of Mormon in 1981 from famed LDS Polish pianist Vladimir Jan Kochanski. Upon receiving the book, the Pope responded: “This is a Mormon publication . . .  Ah, yes. Beautiful young prophet.”
