The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a divine mandate to take the restored gospel into all the world, and it is the Quorum of the Twelve who hold those keys to unlock the doors of nations. June 4, 1837, Joseph Smith the Prophet approached Heber C. Kimball in the Kirtland Temple and said, “The Spirit of the Lord has whispered to me, ‘Let my servant Heber go to England and proclaim my gospel and open the door of salvation to that nation.” Though Heber struggled mightily to feel worthy of the call he had received, nonetheless, on June 11 he met with the First Presidency and was set apart as the first Latter-day Saint missionary to travel abroad. Orson Hyde, Willard Richards and others would accompany him. They departed June 13, 1837 for New York. This episode of History of the Saints tells the story of that first mission to England.
