David W. Patten and Mrs. Lane

See the source image

Mrs. Lane named her son David Patten Lane, why?
a.                  David baptized her
b.                  David healed her
c.                   David healed and baptized her
d.                  With no one else to assist, David acted as mid-wife.
Yesterday’s answer:  
A.                    Amasa Lyman
A few weeks after this meeting, [Amasa Lyman meeting Joseph Smith for the first time] Joseph announced, “Brother Amasa, the Lord requires your labors in the vineyard.” With no more information than that, Brother Lyman replied, “I will go.” This kind of dedication characterized the next thirty-five years of his life, during which it is said that he filled nearly a hundred missions for the Church. One day in Nauvoo he received word that the Prophet wanted him to go north on a mission. The steamer he was to take up the river was then in view. Amasa rushed home, grabbed a few clothes, bade his family farewell, and was at the landing when the boat arrived.
