He Finally Finished the Home

It was a common situation for families to be called to settle areas when they were in the midst of establishing themselves where they currently resided. Many homes that were in the process of being built had to be placed on hold or sold when the family moved to the new place of settlement. Peter Isaacson was no different. When he received the call to settle in Arizona, he was in the process of building a home in Ephraim, Utah. How many years before he could get back to Ephraim and finish the job?
