Ensign, July 2006
[illustration] On the cover: John the Baptist Baptizing Jesus, by Greg Olsen, may not be copied.

[illustration] Inside front cover: The Randolph Tabernacle, by G. A. Garns, may not be copied. During the early part of the twentieth century in the small Utah town of Randolph, this brick tabernacle was the center of activity for the people who lived there. Today the well-maintained tabernacle on the main street looks just as it did more than 100 years ago.

[illustration] Inside back cover: Into the Storm, by Byron Pixton, may not be copied. On this 150th anniversary of the handcart pioneers, we remember the 10 handcart companies that made their way from Iowa City, Iowa, and Florence, Nebraska, to the Salt Lake Valley between 1856 and 1860. While most of these companies traveled the more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) with little trouble, two companies became stranded in early snowstorms in Wyoming, where many died.
