Church History Tour- The Red Brick Store

On this morning, we woke up early and were scheduled to be in the Red Brick Store at 7:00 AM.  Now,  some of you may be wondering what was so amazing about the Red Brick Store.  It wasn't the store, but upstairs from the store that was the sacred site. That was the location where the Relief Society was organized under the authority of the Priesthood and Joseph Smith the prophet!  The Relief Society was organized by Joseph Smith and his wife Emma was "elected" as President of that society, or group of women. There was an actual vote, and she was voted in.   Each woman who wanted to join the Relief Society had to apply to be apart, then they may be voted in. The instructor who was teaching this class mentioned that his ancestor applied to join, and actually did not make it in the first time she applied.  She was voted in at a later time. So this of coarse is different than how we each become a part of Relief Society today. We are each apart of this organization
