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.

An Apostolic Journey

The Beginning of the Church in South America

By Richard E. Turley and Clinton D. Christensen

Today millions of Latter-day Saints live in South America, but what was the Church like in its early days there?
