[illustration] The Journey Begins, by Glen S. Hopkinson. More than 12,000 people joined the Church in the British Isles from 1837 to 1847. Nearly 5,000 of them sailed from Liverpool, England, to America, beginning in 1840. They eventually made their way to Nauvoo, Illinois, in at least 36 companies.

President Brigham Young called Elder Wilford Woodruff of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles to serve as temple president. The first endowments for the dead were performed here.
