Yesterday’s answer:
A   The fact that he was a mere boy
From the life of Ann Welch Crookston:   Ann Welch’s father, of Scotch-Irish ancestry, was a potter by trade, a Methodist preacher, and Sunday School teacher.
Ann was the only living daughter and her father was fond of her, and would often take her on long walks to visit the sick and poor.
Her English mother was a lace worker; the lace was embroidered on fine bobb net. One evening in the fall of 1841 as her mother was returning home from delivering lace, she noticed a crowd of people, and being curious she drew nearer. She saw what looked like a mere boy standing on a box talking to the crowd, and found to her surprise that he was preaching.
Although Ann’s mother was not religiously inclined, she stopped to listen. She was impressed, and invited him to her home to meet her husband and family and tell them about the Gospel. Elder Cordon did come and teach them and they were baptized soon after.
