Saved from Eviction

During 1910 to 1914 the Church was being severely persecuted in Great Britain to the point that many people wanted the Saints exiled from English soil. Who stopped this?
a.                  Queen Elizabeth
b.                  Sir Winston Churchill
c.                   Queen Victoria
d.                  Prince Philip
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Watching Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball chased by a Grizzly bear
Brigham Young, the Twelve, and most of the original Pioneer Company spent only thirty-three days in the valley in 1847. On 16 August they commenced their return to Winter Quarters to prepare their families to come to the valley the next year. En route they met with 1,553 Saints who were already on their way to the Salt Lake Valley. More familiar with the terrain this time, and with fewer wagons and light loads, men and teams found the traveling considerably faster. Their major excitement consisted of losing many valuable horses to the Indians and seeing Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball chased by a grizzly bear.

It’s interesting to note that the “C” in Heber C. Kimball’s name stands for Chase, which seems fitting in this case.
