The August 1852 Special Conference

See the source image

Why did Brigham Young call a special conference of the Church in 1852?
a.                  Opening Europe to missionary work
b.                  The start of the Perpetual emirgration fund
c.                   The cornerstone laying of the Salt Lake Temple
d.                  The announcement of Polygamy
Yesterday’s answer:
B   A dream
From the life of Jacob Hamblin:   Hamblin married widow Rachel Judd Henderson of Council Bluffs eight months later. Having dreamed that he would marry her, he knocked on her door and announced, “My name is Jacob Hamblin, I was impressed to come to your home and ask you to be my wife.” She replied, “I am Rachel Judd, and am willing to marry you, but it will be impossible for us to have children.” Hamblin responded, “My name is Jacob, yours is Rachel, we will have two sons and shall name them Joseph and Benjamin.” They also had three daughters.
