Ezra’s Conversion


Joseph Smith healing Elsa Johnson's arm with Ezra watching 

Ezra Booth has always taken a bad rap in the church, mostly in part because he was one of the first apostates. He fell away as fast as he had joined. We know that he joined the church based on a miracle, Joseph Smith healing Elsa Johnson’s arm. Apparently though, according to Marinda Hyde, he was interested in the new religion because of what?
a.                  The Book of Mormon
b.                  The Doctrine and Covenants
c.                   The Pearl of Great Price
d.                  The Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible
Yesterday’s answer:
b & c   dogs and buffalo
As the Saints fled west, they relied heavily on wool production, occasionally getting “wool” from buffalo or even dogs.
