FREDERICK W. HURST

A faithful missionary, temple worker and loyal church member, Frederick William Hurst, wrote in his journal the following:

>Along about the 1st of March 1893, I found myself alone in the dining room, all had gone to bed. I was sitting at the table when to my great surprize (sic) my elder brother Alfred walked in and sat down opposite me at the table and smiled. I said to him (he looked so natural): >When did you arrive in Utah?=

>He said; >I have just come from the Spirit World, this is not my body that you see, it is lying in the tomb. I want to tell you that when you were on your mission you told me many things about the Spirit World being as real and tangible as the earth. I could not believe you, but when I died and went there and saw for myself I realized that you had told the truth. I attended the Mormon meetings.= He raised his hand and said with much warmth: >I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart. I believe in faith, and repentance and baptism for the remission of sins, but that is as far as I can go. I look to you to do the work for me in the temple. You are watched closely, every move you make is known there, and we were glad you came. We are all looking to you as our head in this great work. I want to tell you that there are a great many spirits who weep and mourn because they have relatives in the Church here who are careless and are doing nothing for them.@ (BYU Studies 33, no. 1 (1993), pgs. 41-2)
