I was Married to Miss Phebe Whittemore Carter on the 13 Day of April 1837, I received my patri- archal Blessing under the hands of president Joseph Smith the patriach on the 15 day of April 1837 I felt impressed ^By the spirit of God^ to take a Mission to Fox Islands, on the East of Maine a country I knew nothing about I made my feelings known to some of the leading Apostles and they advised me to go
~ Wilford Woodruff
At the close of the conference we were called upon to administer to a woman who was possessed with the Devil she at times was dumb & greatly afflicted with the evil spirits that dwelt in her She believed in Jesus of Nazareth and in us as his servents, and wished us to administer to her four of us laid hands upon her head and commanded the Devil in the Name of Jesus Christ to come ^depart^ out of her, and it was immediately done and the woman arose with great joy and gave thanks and praise unto God for according to her faith she was made whole from that hour, a child also that was sick was made whole by the laying on of hands according to the word of God see Mark 16 ch 17.

I baptized my Uncle Ozem Woodruff & his wife Hannah, & his son John and we rejoiced together for this was in fulfillment of a dream I had in 1818 when I was eleven years of age We all rejoiced together.

when the time drew near for the fulfillment of this commandment of the Lord Brigham Young being then president of the Twelve (As Thomas B. Marsh had fallen) He called the Twelve together into [illegible] then at Quency Illinois to see what our Minds would be about going to Far West to fulfill the revelation Father Joseph Smith the patriarch and others who were present did not think it wisdom for us to attempt it as our lives would be at stake and thought the Lord would take the will for the deed But when president Young asked the Twelve what their feelings were upon the sub[ject] [page torn] We all of us as in the voice

Br Joseph saw that his eyes were glazed He speechless and uncon- cious He held his hand in his looking him in the sp face He says Br Fordham Do you not know me[?] at first he made no reply but we could all see the effects of the Spirit of God resting upon him He again said Elijah do you not know me[?] with a low whisper he said yes, He then said have you not faith to be healed, His answer a little planer was I am afraid it is to late if you had come sooner I think I might have been, He had the appearance of a man waking out of sleep, it was from the sleep of Death Joseph then said do you not believe that Jesus is the Christ, I do Br Joseph. Then the prophet of God spoke with a loud voice as in the Majesty of the GodHead Elijah I command you in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth to arise and be made whole. The words of the prophet was not like word of man but like the voice of God. It seemed to me that the House shook from its foundation, Elijah Fordham leaped from his bed like a man raised from the dead [to] life

Then Joseph arose and preached some precious things of the Kingdom of God unto us in the power of the Holy Ghost some of which I will mention from my journal Ever keep in exercise the principal of mercy and be ready
~ Wilford Woodruff
the first thirty days after my arrival in Herefordshire I had baptized forty five preachers, & 160 members of the United Brethren which put into my hands one Chapel & 45 homes licensed according to law to preach in, this opened a wide field for labor, this enabled me to bring into the Church through the blessings of God over eighteen hundred souls during eight month labor including all of the 600 united Brethren exept one persons it also included
~ Wilford Woodruff
The whole History of this Herefordshire Mission shows us the importance of carefully ^listening^ listeninig to the still small voice of the spirit of God, to listen ^to^ the revelations of the Holy Ghost. The Lord had a people there prepared for the Gospel, they were praying for light & truth, the Lord sent me to them I declared the Gospel of Life and Salvation unto them, and some eighteen hundred souls received it and many of them have been gathered to Zion in these Mountains and many of them have been called to officiate in the Bishoppric Bishopricks
