The First Foreign Language Mission

See the source image

In 1843, four elders were called to the first foreign language mission. Where was it?
a.                  England
b.                  The Pacific Islands
c.                   Denmark
d.                  Mexico
Yesterday’s answer:
B   At work while giving Parley a haircut
From the life of Cleo Heavener:   My grandpa was James Madison Pierce, who joined the Mormon Church in Rochester, Stratford, New Hampshire. He loved to tell me that he’d held a knife to Parley P. Pratt’s throat more times than he could count. Grandpa was a barber, and Parley P. gave him the missionary lessons while Grandpa gave him a haircut and shaved his beard. Grandpa went to Nauvoo, Winter Quarters, and on to Utah and settled in Springville.
