An Unusual Baptism

See the source image
Brigham Young

It was not uncommon during the Nauvoo years of the church for individuals to be baptized for healing. Brigham Young baptized Mary McRee Black Brown’s son for healing but also sealed what on him at the time of baptism?
a.                  Eternal marriage
b.                  Sealed against all sickness and disease
c.                   Protected against bullet or blade
d.                  The mantel of a Seer
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   3 weeks
From the life of Heber C. Kimball:   Only three weeks after Heber and his wife, Vilate, joined the Baptist church in 1831, they encountered Mormon missionaries and, soon after, were baptized.
