In 1838 he was made an apostle and assisted with the migration of the Mormons from Missouri to Illinois. In 1839 he was called to Britain on a mission, the first to bring Mormon- ism to Ireland. In 1841 he returned to Nauvoo, where he married three wives, became a member of the city council, regent of thr university, judge advocate of the Nauvoo Legion, editor of Timps and Seasons, and editor and proprietor of the Nauvoo Neighbor. In 1846 he was again called to Britain on a mission, then in 1849 on a mission to France. In 1854 he was sent to New York to preside over the Eastern Mission. He founded the Mormon, a newspaper, and served as editor until his return to Utah in 1857. No wonder he was in debt to the church. His whole adult life had been spent in service to it.
