Who was Responsible for Helping Him Make the Journey

Benjamin F. Johnson
Benjamin F. Johnson states that he cut his ankle with an axe and it was only because of him and what other person that made it so he could complete a long journey on a bad ankle?
a.                  His doctor
b.                  His minister
c.                   Joseph Smith
d.                  His guardian angel
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      Moldy corn meal
The following is from the journal of Zadoc Knapp Judd. This incident took place in the early fall of 1848:
Much of the crops were destroyed by the crickets which made the people's provisions very scarce. I found one man who thought he could spare four or five bushels of wheat, but after learning that I had no family, he declined to let me have it; but I finally obtained a sack of corn which I got ground fine for bread. The corn proved to be a little damp and the meal soon got musty, for I did not know how to take care of it. This was my winter's bread and I ate it and felt thankful for it.
