Walter Murray Gibson

Elder Gibson was called on a mission in the late 1850s. When arriving in his mission he assumed false authority and ordained apostles. What mission did this happen in?
a.                  Japan
b.                  Italy
c.                   Hawaii
d.                  Canada
Yesterday’s answer:
D   Utah Valley area (current day Provo)
The first company of Utah pioneers met famous mountain man Jim Bridger along the pioneer trail in Wyoming on June 28, 1847. He described the beautiful Utah Valley with its freshwater lake, plentiful grass, timbered streams, and wild berries, but he warned that the Timponagots Utes had horses and guns. The LDS leaders decided to establish their first settlement in the Salt Lake Valley rather than risk confrontations with the natives, but they were mindful of Utah Valley’s potential as a site for future settlements.
