Again Verily verily I say unto you it is expedient that every  man who goes forth to proclaim mine everlasting Gospel that  inasmuch as they have families and receive moneys by gift  they should send it unto them or make use of it for their  benefit as the Lord shall direct them. for thus it seemeth me  good and let all those who have not families who receive  money who receive send it up unto the of Zion or unto the   of that it may be consecrated for the bringing  forth of the revelations and the printing thereof and for establi shing of Zion and if any man shall give unto any of you a  coat or a suit take it the old and cast it unto the poor and go  your way rejoicing And if any man among you be strong  in the spirit let him take with him he that is weak that he  may be edified in all meekness that he may become strong also.  Therefore take with you those who are ordained unto the lesser  priesthood and send them before you to make appointments and to pre pare the way and to fill appointments that yourselves are not able  to fill Behold this is the way that mine Apostles in ancient days  built up my church unto me therefore let every man stand  in his own office labor in his own calling and let not the head [p. 155]
