In 1925 Elder Ballard was called to open a mission. The initial response to their message was slow, however, Elder Ballard prophesied that this mission would eventually become one of the strongest in the Church. What mission was he referring to?
a. South Africa
d. South America
B His dead son appearing to him
In 1884 Marriner W. Merrill became president of the Logan Temple. During this time another miracle took place. He was grieving exceedingly over the death of his oldest son, his namesake, who died in the prime of life. One day while he was returning to Richmond from the temple, the boy appeared to his father, explained to him the important mission to which he had been called, and admonished him to be comforted. It was a great consolation to Brother Merrill to know that his son’s death was truly the Lord’s will.
