Yet the pioneers went on with hope, not giving up on the dream to settle in Zion.[illustration] Inside back: Joseph in Liberty Jail, by Liz Lemon Swindle, oil on canvas, 27″ x 36″, 1998. Languishing in the cold confines of the Liberty Jail in Missouri, the Prophet Joseph Smith called out in anguished prayer, “O God, where art thou?” (D&C 121:1). In response came these comforting words: “All these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good. … Fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever” (D&C 122:7, 9).
