March, 1832-Hiram, Ohio. Revelation addressed to Stephen Burnett.

Preach the gospel

D&C 79:1a Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you, my servant Stephen Burnett:

D&C 79:1b Go ye; go ye into the world, and preach the gospel to every creature that cometh under the sound of your voice; and inasmuch as you desire a companion, I will give unto you my servant Eden Smith.

D&C 79:1c Wherefore, go ye and preach my gospel, whether to the north or to the south, to the east or to the west, it mattereth not; for ye cannot go amiss.

D&C 79:1d Therefore, declare the things which ye have heard, and verily believe, and know to be true.

D&C 79:1e Behold, this is the will of him who hath called you, your Redeemer, even Jesus Christ. Amen.
