In 1888 what did the Church start as a supplement to the current secular school system?
a.                  Early morning seminary
b.                  Religion class
c.                   LDS Business College
d.                  Sunday school
Yesterday’s answer:
A   Learning that the temple endowment was not given in Kirtland and Nauvoo
O. H. Berg was one of the very first temple workers called from Provo in early 1877 to travel the two-hundred-mile distance south to work in the new temple. “It is a miracle to erect such a House in the midst of a desert,” he observed, “and by a people poor and driven in to a wilderness.” David John, also of Provo, was another such worker. Serving a temple mission in 1882, he performed hundreds of endowments for the dead for both his own ancestors and hundreds of others. “I have learned that there were given no endowments for the dead in Kirtland or Nauvoo,” he recorded with some surprise. “They only baptized for the dead, and gave endowments for the living.”
