Wilford Woodruff 

What was Wilford Woodruff promised in his patriarchal blessing that was fulfilled?

a.      He would baptize many ministers

b.      He would become the premiere journal keeper in the Church

c.       He would baptize thousands

d.      He would baptize his father’s household

Yesterday’s answer:

b.   5’ 5”

Mr. Cowdery was an able lawyer and a great advocate. His manners were easy and gentlemanly; he was polite, dignified, yet courteous. He had an open countenance, high forehead, dark brown eyes, Roman nose, clenched lips and prominent lower jaw. He shaved smooth and was neat and cleanly in his person. He was of light stature, about five feet, five inches high, and had a loose, easy walk. With all his kind and friendly disposition, there was a certain degree of sadness that seemed to pervade his whole being. His association with others was marked by the great amount of information his conversation conveyed and the beauty of his musical voice. His addresses to the court and jury were characterized by a high order of oratory, with brilliant and forensic force. He was modest and reserved, never spoke ill of anyone, never complained.
