The Numbers Just Before the Boom

Image result for numbers exploding
We know when the missionaries first went to Britain in 1837 that the number of baptisms exploded. Thousands came into the church in a very short space of time. How many convert baptisms were there in America prior to the first British mission?
a.                  25,000
b.                  12,000
c.                   9,000
d.                  16,000
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      She had a peepstone
Two names of individuals interested in stealing the plates from Joseph Smith in 1827 was Sally Chase, “a local clairvoyant” and her brother Willard, a “Methodist class-leader.” Sally claimed that she had a peepstone that could tell her where “Joe Smith kept his gold bible hid.”
