Title Indian Stories
Description BISHOP FARNWORTH'S VISION Brother George Farnworth, who is bishop of Mount Pleasant, Sanpete County, is a very faithful, earnest laborer in the cause of truth, and had, a&out the time of the Manti Temple dedication, a -very singu]ar and instructive experience. For some length of time previous to the dedication of the temple he was greatly exercised in his mind as to his own kindred and the work to be done for them. He had no records, no names. Yet he knew he had relatives, for he was the only one of his family in the church. The dedication of the temple and the work set a going there, naturally increased this anxiety and longing for knowledge on the part of Brother Farnworth, He started from his home in Mount Pleasant to visit Manti shortly after the dedication of the temple, and what then occurred to him we will let him relate in his own words: "The Morning of the 16th of July 1*88" about 10 o'clock while I was traveling between Pigeon Hollow and the Ephraim grave yard I felt a very strange sensation such as I never before experienced. Under this influence I went along and chancing to raise ray eyes, it seemed that right in front of me there was a vast multitude of men; to the right and a little in front stood a large man about the size of my father, who weighed two hundred and forty-two pounds. This man waved his right hand towards the multitude and said: "These are your kindred! And we have been waiting, waiting, waiting! Waiting for your temple to be finished. It is now dedicated and accepted by our Father, You are our representative, and we want you to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. You have had the privilege of hearing the gospel of the Son of God; we had not that great blessing. " 122
