MISSIONS OF LEVI STEWART

 

Apr-Oct 1939  John D. Lee's journal records : "To Fayette Co., Illinois, a mission with Levi Stewart. With blistered feet, Levi was dragging along as though he must consider each step before he made it. We carried a small bag with a change of socks and underwear, a Bible and a Book of Mormon, but not a penny between us, depending on the generousity of others."

 

Dec 1839 Letter written by Julian Moses giving an account of his mission states: Br. Lee, and Levi Stewart came into Overton Co., Tennessee. I went with Lee into Jackson Co. where we baptized twenty one more; Elder Stewart baptized two in White Co. Brothers Stewart and Lee, returned home to their families

 

 

Oct 1843-April 1844 Levi Stewart writes a letter to the Times & Season, Nauvoo, Illinois, dated 13 April 1844.  “I have traveled near six months since July last, most of which time I labored in Franklin, Williamson, and Johnson counties, in the south part of this state, Illinois.  There had been but few discourses delivered by any of the elders in these parts, therefore, prejudice was great. After hearing the Gospel for themselves, the honest in heart began to discover the many falsehoods that have over ‑run the country, and began to investigate the doctrines of Christ. The result was, many believed, and I had more calls for preaching than I could attend to, and through the assistance of God, I was enabled to baptize 24 souls. I left many more believing; whom I hope will obey the Gospel. There is a great door open for preaching. My prayer to God is for the rolling forth of His Kingdom, Until the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdoms of our God.”

Your brother in the Everlasting Covenant, Levi Stewart

 

In Nov 2000 I got the following e-mail:  You may be interested to know that it appears it may have been your ancestor, Levi Stewart, who converted my Ancestors – the Yanceys – in Williamson Co., Illinois in the 1840’s.  There are literally thousands today who are members of the LDS church because of the message that Levi Stewart brought to the Yanceys.  Dennis J. Yancey, Miami, Florida
