I’ll do Anything, Just not that . . .

Moses Thatcher
Moses Thatcher would become a great missionary for the Church. He converted to the gospel at age 15 in the California gold fields and one month later found himself on a mission and a companion to Elder Boyle. Moses was fine with being on a mission at such a young age, but what wasn’t he fine with?
a.                  Singing in front of people
b.                  Tracting
c.                   Preaching
d.                  Rising at 6am
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  A compass and a telescope
Referring to Brigham Young’s cane: Displayed along with the boots is his walking stick. The cane is a mottled brown color with a silver metal piece which unscrews, revealing a compass. In the hollow of the cane is a telescope such as a sea captain might have used. These items were donated by the wife of Henry Chariton Jacobs, a stepson of Brigham Young. His mother was Zina D. H. Young.
