Abstract:
In October 1856, President Brigham Young sent rescue teams to the aid of more than a thousand pioneers who were stranded in winter storms on the plains. Little did anyone know of the need of those faithful Saints would have for a Second Rescue—a spiritual rescue that would begin 135 years later.This story explores an amazing experience that began through promptings to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with the realization that spiritual ordinances had not been performed for many of those survivors, as well those that had died during the journey. This book tells of the love and urgency felt by those who were able to perform the spiritual Second Rescue in behalf of those who had passed on.
