John Taylor, Missionary

John Taylor had preached in some of the largest churches in Europe. During his mission to England and later to France, he spoke from any pulpit were the minister was agreeable. His courage was undaunted as he preached the gospel and converted many.

He had the privilege of dedicating the first working temple in northern Utah. He felt humbled and blessed to have that opportunity. Still thinking of missionary work, he said in his dedicatory prayer, "We dedicate [this house] that Thy servants may go forth to the nations of the earth endowed with power from on high . . . according to Thy word . . . that thy servants . . . may be saviors upon Mount Zion."

This servant of the Lord wore himself out in his service to his God.
