    "Mormon church religious leader. Apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Joseph Smith told him, 'Brother Amasa, the Lord requires your labors in the vinyard.' He replied, 'I will go.' This kind of dedication characterized his life, nearly fulfilling one hundred missions in thirty-five years. He marched with Zions Camp, stood in defense at Far West, and served jail time with Joseph Smith. He was called to the Twelve following the apostacy of Orson Pratt who had been excommunicated. When Elder Pratt had been reinstated to the Church and his former position, Joseph called him as counselor replacing Sidney Rigdon. While on a mission to Europe with Charles C. Rich, he was accused of preaching heresy and repented, however, a few weeks later he again began preaching such and was released from the Quorum of the Twelve and excommunicated. He later associated himself with the Godbeites, a Mormon splinter group, and died having never returned to the cause in which he sacrificed so much." []
