In 1852 in Jylland, Denmark, two Mormon Missionaries were visiting door to door and not finding anyone willing to listen to their message. One Elder was willing to quit and call it a day and the other reminded him of the dream he had had the night before that when they came to a house with a hen and a brood of white chicks in the front yard that the family would accept the gospel and that they needed to continue their efforts.
They continued walking and after some time they came to the home of the Christensen family and there was the hen and her chicks in the yard.
The Elder said, "This is the place, this is proof that if we will go to our Heavenly Father in earnestness He will help us overcome our trials and troubles."
Annie Catherine Christensen Olsen was 11 at the time and wrote, "My father was the first to embrace the Gospel and it wasn't long after until the rest of the family were baptized. My father never touched liquor or tabacco [he had been a heavy drinker] after he joined the Church.
This painting is a representation of that experience. Our friend Janice Hecht is the great-great grand daughter of Annie.
