He Needed $5

Charles Lamb states in his autobiography that he needed $5 dollars in iron to finish his wagon to head west to Salt Lake City, but that he didn’t have the money. How did he eventually come to get the money for the iron?
a.                  Joseph Smith gave it to him
b.                  The Angel Moroni gave it to him
c.                   By trying to find his lost cow he came across the money
d.                  Governor Ford of Illinois gave it to him
Yesterday’s answer:
B.   Sir Winston Churchill
   During 1910 to 1914 the Church was being severely persecuted in Great Britain, and of course receiving bad press. Many people in England believed that the Church was still practicing polygamy and that the Mormon elders were in their country to recruit young girls to send to Utah. It was at this time that England was on the verge of expelling all Latter-day Saints from English soil. Young Winston Churchill, displaying great courage, helped the Church’s cause by invoking the right of religious freedom. No expulsions took place.
