Title Love's Reward
Description Mormons send missionaries to Protestants?" She put the last of the dough in the pan and looked out the open door. "Goodness! the Sanpete Valley train is in from Nephi already. It must be mid-morning." Amy didn't look at the train. Instead she steadied her gaze on Clarissa. "If you believe faiths interact because of concern, how do you justify good Protestants like the U.S. marshals persecuting Mormons because of polygamy when Mormons believe it is a divine truth?" "Protestants don't accept your prophets as men of God, so their revelation is worhtless. To a Protestant, a second wife is nothing more than a... a mistress." Amy's mouth dropped open in disbelief. What are you saying?" Clarissa stood by the door, her whole frail body quivering. Suddenly she seemed dwarfed by the door frame. Amy released the tightness in her face. A smile grew on her lips. "Listen to us," she said softly. "Friends . . . arguing." she stepped closer to Clarissa. "For all our differ- ences, there is one thing we both count as truth; a Christian Loves his fellowmen as Christ loves---through good and evil, through right and wrong, infinitely. We can forget these words were spoken." AL that moment, Charlotte came bursting into the house and slammed the door. "Momma," she said breathlessly, "I went to see... the train... a man in a uniform got off ... asked me where. . . Miss Knight lives. . . coming here. . . I ran all the way. . . to tell you." She put the jar of honey on the table and breathed heavily. "United States marshals!" Amy whispered. The board on the porch squeaked. The women stood frozen. A loud knock came on the door. "Quick!" Clarissa's whisper quavered. "Hide in the bed-room". Grasping Charlotte's arm, Amy made her way out of the kitchen. She crouched behind the closed door. There was an-other loud knock. - 12 -
