Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Married just three weeks when he recieved his first mission call to the Northern Mission with a child on its way.
Years later called to the Northwest States Mission as President where he experienced many experiences among the Native-Americans on the reservations.
As an Apostle he was sent to South America where he prophesied, "The work of the Lord will grow slowly for a time here just as an oak grows slowly from an acorn . . . thousands wil join the Church here."
