Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   That he would have three baptisms
From the life of Abraham Owen Woodruff: While on his mission to Germany, the following incident happened- Not long after he had commenced his labors there, he dreamed, one night, that he was fishing in a beautiful stream of water. In the dream, he was fortunate enough to catch three trout. The dream proved to be prophetic, for very soon afterwards he baptized a man and his wife and daughter. The ordinance was performed in the River Elbe, beneath the shade of the spreading lindens, on the exact spot where, many years before, Elder Budge baptized two of our very highly respected brethren—Elders Karl G. Maeser and Fred W. Schoenfeld.
