In 1838, suffering from persecution, hardship, and uncertainty, members of the Quorum of the Twelve must have been astonished at the revelation that said: And next spring, let them depart to go over the great waters, and there promulgate my gospel. Their adventures in the British Isles are a truly epic story in Latter-day Saint missionary work poignant, powerful, and inspiring.
Men with a Mission is a carefully researched, compelling account of that work, taking us to such renowned places as the River Ribble, John Benbow s picturesque farm, and the docks of Liverpool. This is the story of how those courageous young leaders (their average age was thirty-one) preached, published, confronted devils and persecutors, battled poverty, walked great distances, suffered homesickness, and won the hearts and loyalty of those who became the British Saints.
