Here's answer to week's question

(From page 2)

During a period of 50 years of the Mormon emigration from the nations abroad, not a ship load of Latter-day Saints, not a vessel bearing the Elders of Israel to or from foreign shores was lost at sea. Captains and sailors regarded this with feelings akin to reverential awe and to accept as a good omen the presence of Mormon elders or emigrants among their ship's passengers.
