Title Two Cultures
Description Our prophet had spoken, and we obeyed. Our small colony left our wheat crops, green in our fields, and our homes to whomever came along. As a close neighbor took one look at our homes and field, he said, "This is the hardest luck we've had since leaving Kirtland, Ohio. " I hadn't been with the saints in Ohio, but I knew how he felt. It was difficult to leave, but leave we did. To make the journey even more difficult, as we traveled along we discovered that we didn't have roads to travel on. Consequently, the journey was tedious and slow. There was hope and consolation in the knowledge that we were following council from our leaders. We moved to Mt. Carmel for a short time, but in 1874, when the United Order was organized, we moved to Orderville to join the settlement there. I was given the assignment to haul freight back and forth to Salt Lake City for anything that was needed by the Order. 1 was also given land to farm and animals to take care of Father and Mother made shoes for the Order, the trade Mother had learned in Australia. We were all very busy in our new lives. When the Order dissolved eleven years later, I continued to farm and raise sheep for a living. We prospered temporally and spiritually. In gratitude for the blessings of heaven we all gave thanks. The journey had taken over twenty-five years I have not regretted a moment of it. Today I stand before you ready to accept my call When a prophet speaks, I will listen and obey. My only regret is leaving my young family without a father. Even that will not deter me, for I know that they are in the hands of our caring Creator. I cannot deny the blessings He wants to bestow upon us. I bid you farewell until we meet again.
