Lorenzo Snow traveled the world to spread the gospel. When he was sailing to Hawaii, a storm tipped over his boat. Lorenzo trusted in the Lord and was saved from drowning. While speaking at the St. George Tabernacle in 1899, President Lorenzo Snow felt inspired to teach the importance of paying a full tithe. As more members began paying tithes, the Church’s finances grew more stable. The Saints paid with money when they had it and with things such as eggs, milk, and cattle when they didn’t.
