Ray gives an overview of Heber C. Kimball's life and service to the Church. Kimball was disposed to think about religion early in his youth, and on the night that Joseph Smith received the gold plates he saw "hosts of men" in the heavens marching forth to battle the forces of evil. Kimball was baptized in 1832 and became a firm believer and staunch supporter of Joseph Smith. He marched with Zion's Camp, served two missions in England, and was serving a mission in the Eastern States when the Prophet Joseph was martyred. Kimball's faith was tested several times, particularly with the revelation of plural marriage, but he remained faithful and served in the Quorum of the Twelve and the First Presidency. Kimball traveled in the first pioneer company across the plains to Salt Lake, where he continued to help lead the Church and was noted for his gift of prophecy.
