The Lord’s Hand in the Mission

See the source image

Lorenzo Snow joined the Church, served four missions over a ten year span, trekked to Utah, was made an apostle and then called to serve his fifth mission. While crossing the plains eastward, the band of missionaries witnessed three miracles testifying to them that the Lord was mindful of their labors. Which one miracle did not happen?
a.            An Indian attack stopped
b.            A wolf attack stopped
c.            A wind blowing and clearing the snow in front of them
d.            The Missouri River congealing so they could cross
Yesterday’s answer:
C   Hyrum Smith
From the life of Joseph Smith:   Yet in all of the tremendous power he wielded, he remained ever affable, easy to approach, and often surprisingly informal. He was sometimes criticized for playing ball with the boys of Nauvoo, even by his brother Hyrum. In response to this criticism he declared: “Brother Hyrum, my mingling with the boys in a harmless sport like this does not injure me in any way, but on the other hand it makes them happy and draws their hearts nearer to mine; and who knows but there may be young men among then who may sometime lay down their lives for me!”
