Title Strong Convictions - The Snow Family
Description acre The cows and hogs were not fenced in. but came to the house every night. With no matches, fires were built with flint rock and a substance called punk, taken from rotted elm tree The inside would catch fire quickly There was a lot of wildlife there and people were protected by carrying a lighted stick of fire, especially at night Uncle Levi and son Erastus Snow, lived in a nearby village, also brother-in-law, Winslow Farr, a devout citizen of a northern village, lived nearby. One day, he had a visit from Orson Pratt and Lyman Johnson, two Mormon missionaries This was in 1832 A school building was arranged for their meetings The people packed in They said they had come 800 miles to be there They had been led by the Spirit. They wanted to teach the everlasting gospel as taught by Jesus Christ. They proclaimed they had been blessed with THE GIFT OF HEALING AND THE WORKING OF MIRACLES OF THE LORD'S PEOPLE IN THESE DAYS Elder Pratt went home with Mr Farr where mother Farr was ill and had been for seven years with a liver condition "Do you believe you can be healed?" asked Elder Pratt sister Farr said. "I know God can heal me if he wants me to live I believe " He prayed and commanded her to be healed and she was, in the twinkling of an eye She called for clothes, dressed herself and sang PRAISE TO GOD with her family the rest of the night. This healing caused a great sensation in Charleston and St. Johnsbury The entire Farr Family was baptized in the Clyde River In 1832-33. a large number of the Snow Family in the New England area were baptized Some were given the priesthood as well as baptized.
