Moses' intercessory role is not to seize with his natural death, as he nears the mountain he lays hands upon Joshua and gives him a garment and certain other activities.
For the past fifteen years, Bob and I have been both privileged and fortunate to be hosted by Einar in his home since he is my first cousin with whom I have been corresponding through the years. Einar has imparted to us his vast knowledge and wisdom during these years which has solidified our testimonies of the true gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed through Joseph Smith, Prophet of the Restoration. Through these times, we have explored the total Plan of Salvation and shed many tears in our late-night discussions with Einar as we sat together around the dining table. Further, he has graciously prepared countless meals in our behalf as well as let us stay in his home. Einar extended his help to us in further counseling Bob and even taking the time to edit some of his chapters of his three volume work, World History for Latter-day Saints, for which Bob is extremely thankful and eternally indebted. The many spiritual experiences we received as we were enlightened by Einar's inexhaustible mind are too numerous to mention. He truly is a choice, foreordained, humble servant of Heavenly Father and Jesus and is the most prolific latter-day saint we know. Einar reflects the epitome of Emerson's thought: "Truly speaking, it is not instruction, but provocation that one can receive from another."
