journey unto the western countries, and proclaim my gospel even as I have them. And he who is faithful shall overcome all things, and shall be lifted up at the last day. And again I say unto my servant Major N. Ashley and my servant , let them take their journey also into the south country; yea,
let all those take their journey as I have commanded them. going from house to house, and from village to village, and from city to city; and in what soever house ye enter, and they receive you, leave your blessings upon that house; and in whatsoever house ye enter, and they receive you not, ye shall depart speedily from that house, and shake off the dust of your feet for a testimony against them; and you shall be filled with joy and gladness and know this, that in the day of judgment
you shall be judg es of that house, and condemn them; and it shall be more tolerable for the heathen in the day of judg ment, than for that house; therefore gird up your loins and be faithful and ye shall overcome all things and be lifted up at the last day: even so. Amen.
4. And again thus saith the Lord unto you, O ye of my , who have given your names that you might know my his will concerning you; behold I say unto you that it is the duty of the church to assist in supporting the families of those, and also to support the families of those who are called and must needs be sent unto the world, to proclaim the Gospel unto the world: wherefore I the Lord give unto you this commandment, that ye obtain places for your families,
inasmuch as your brethren are willing to open their hearts; and let all such as can, obtain places for their families, and support of the church for them, not fail to go into the world; whether to the east, or to the west, or to the north, or to the south, let them ask and they shall receive; knock and it shall be opened [p. 182]
