It was Deserving of Another Name

Sugar Creek, Iowa
The first night that the Saints were forced from Nauvoo they camped at Sugar Creek, Iowa. What did the Saints rename this creek?
a.                  The Little Mississippi 
b.                  The Brook Kendron
c.                   The Jordon River        
d.                  Galilee Creek
Yesterday’s answer:
     c.   That Parley P. Pratt would escape imprisonment in Missouri
Brother Addison Everett, a High Priest of the Church in New York City and one of the first members Parley P. Pratt had baptized there, related to Parley that the Church in that city were assembled in prayer for me on the evening of the 4th of July previous, that I might be delivered from prison and from my enemies in Missouri. When, on a sudden, the spirit of prophecy fell on him, and he arose and declared to the church that they might cease their prayers on the subject: “For,” said he, “on this moment brother Parley goes at liberty.”
