When a small town dies in the desert
- by admin
On a clear day in March of 1883, a white pickup truck is on its way to pick up passengers on a train from Salt Lake City to Salt Lake.
The truck, driven by a man named George Blythe, has been stranded on a desert road for over a month.
The driver, Joseph Smith, is the church’s last remaining member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his life hangs in the balance.
This is an important story, but not one you’ll hear much about outside the Church.
The story of Blyth’s life is the story of a remarkable desert life.
As a young man, Joseph, who is now in his seventies, had a vision that he would soon be in a position to change the course of human history.
He wanted to travel the world and discover how people lived in a desert.
This vision had come from the Book of Mormon, a book of scripture that tells the story that inspired him to become a Mormon.
Joseph told the story to his wife Emma, and they both shared it with the church.
As Joseph continued to grow, his vision grew, and he eventually found a place to stay in the nearby town of Kirtland, Utah.
For nearly half a century, Joseph and Emma traveled from Kirtles to Salt Flats, where they lived until their death.
Joseph’s vision had been a revelation from God, and the revelation to live in a land in which the Lord had commanded his people to live was one of the most powerful, profound, and significant events in Mormon history.
As time passed, Joseph’s faith grew.
He began to read and re-read the Bible more closely, and it began to clear up some of the confusion in his mind.
He had become more convinced of the importance of following the Lord’s commands in the Bible.
He felt that he was being saved.
Joseph eventually returned to Kirtle, and in 1882, he married Sarah Jane Wiginton, who would become his second wife.
They had two children, Eliza and Eliza Jane.
The following year, Joseph married Sarah Ann McConkie, and their daughter, Sarah Jane, was born in 1884.
Two years later, in 1887, Sarah died, and Joseph was forced to leave the Church in protest of its teachings.
As his life became increasingly lonely, he began to question the way he lived his life and to feel more and more disconnected from the rest of the world.
Joseph was so disillusioned with the world, he decided that he could do more good by leaving the church than he could by continuing to follow it.
He was baptized by the First Presidency, and a few months later, on March 17, 1890, he left the Church for the first time in over a decade.
Joseph Smith had found a new home, but it was not in Kirtlles.
He went to Salt City and settled down in the small town of Fayette, near the Missouri River.
It was a small community, but its population was nearly 10,000, and its prosperity was such that it attracted national attention.
After moving into Fayette in the spring of 1891, Joseph began a series of activities that would become one of his defining moments.
First, he started to teach classes.
He also began to publish books.
After the 1891 trial of a polygamist church member in Utah, Joseph was granted a new trial and sentenced to three years in prison.
He spent more than a year in prison and was released in the summer of 1892.
He then moved to Ketchum, Idaho, where he continued to preach the Gospel.
By then, he had become disillusioned by the world’s attitude toward the Bible, and many people had started to believe that Joseph was a fraud.
In 1892, Joseph sent a letter to a group of fellow Mormons, including Sidney Rigdon, in which he expressed his concern that many people were living a false life, and that Joseph would soon become a false prophet.
Joseph also began teaching at the local church in Fayette.
He gave a number of talks and demonstrations to his congregation.
The day before his trial, the presiding officer of Fenton City Jail, Samuel R. Brown, announced that Joseph had been convicted of perjury, which would bring the sentence to life imprisonment.
He sentenced Joseph to spend at least six months in prison, but in a statement to the court he warned Joseph that he feared the consequences of being released from prison before the time had elapsed.
“Joseph is a man of great faith and of great virtue,” Brown wrote.
“If he has been a good man in his time of need, he will continue to serve his fellow man in the Lord, and to the end of eternity.”
On March 18, 1893, Joseph met with the First Vision, and then began to receive the revelations of the Lord that he had received during his prison time. One of
