In August 1877, the Founding Fathers of the United States appeared to Wilford Woodruff in the St. George Temple, asking that their temple work be done. President Woodruff reports that he “straightway went into the baptismal font and called upon Brother McAllister to baptize me for the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and fifty other eminent men.” Inside back cover: Welfare Project—Picking Potatoes, by Larry W. Christensen, 24″ by 36″, oil, 1987. Selected for the 1987 Church Fine Arts Competition show. In April 1936, the Church established welfare farms as part of the welfare program to provide food and work for Church members in need. The Church still owns land on which commodities for welfare storehouses are produced, and Church members have the opportunity to help the needy by laboring voluntarily on these farms.
