Description

By 1852, just five years after Brigham Young and his fellow Latter-day Saints began settling the valleys of the Intermountain West, the global distribution of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was much more European than American. President Young and his counselors in the First Presidency planned a special missionary conference in the newly constructed adobe Salt Lake Tabernacle on the temple block. Over the weekend of August 28-29, Church leaders announced a flurry of global mission assignments. During the Saturday afternoon session, the First Presidency assigned one hundred Latter-day Saint men to proselytize in distant lands, the largest cohort of full-time elders in the Church �s threedecade history. This book tells the stories and adventures of eight men called to Wales, Prussia, Gibraltar, the Cape of Good Hope, the Sandwich Islands, China, Siam, and Australia.
