The Results of His Labors

Brigham Young
When Brigham Young was asked by a New York City newspaper editor what the results of his labors were, what did Brigham center his accomplishments on?
a.                   His settlement of the Salt Lake Valley
b.                  The size of his family
c.                   How many missions he had served and the number of converts he brought into the Church
d.                  His first mission to Canada
Yesterday’s answer:
c.   Cholera
Death frequently visited the Saints as they slowly made their way west. On 23 June 1850 the Crandall family numbered fifteen. By the week’s end seven had died of the dreaded plague of cholera. In the next few days five more family members died. Then on 30 June Sister Crandall died in childbirth along with her newborn baby.
