What was considered the toughest mission in the Church during the 1860’s?
a.                  The Muddy Mission (Nevada)
b.                  Russia
c.                   The Gold Rush Mission
d.                  The Southern States Mission
Yesterday’s answer:
(A)               Ask those members that were satisfied with the selection to stand
In reference to the 1835 mission of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles: The Record of the Twelve also fails to note what was, in effect, their “missionary farewell” on Sunday, May 3, 1835, the day following the “grand council” mentioned above. Not only did each of the members of the quorum give a farewell address, President Sidney Rigdon “called upon those of the congregation who were satisfied with the choice which the Lord had made of the Twelve to manifest it by rising from their seats, which the congregation universally did.”
