Looking for Joseph Smith source

Recommended Posts

I watched a tick of the Pocatello Idaho Temple groundbreaking and someone quoted Joseph Smith as saying "We're not just building a Temple here, the Lord is building us", I can't find where Joseph Smith ever said that, does anyone know where? Thanks!

I haven't been able to find an original source, but Joseph is heard saying it to Brigham Young in the film "Joseph Smith:  The Prophet of the Restoration" found online here.  Start at about the 30 minute, 50 second mark.  Gary Cook wrote the script for the movie.  If he is contactable, perhaps he could reveal the source?

Pretty sure from the same source where he said that people dressed like quakers lived on the moon.  Will be published in Vol 11 of Joseph Smith Papers project
"Faith Promoting Rumours".

Chapter 3, titled "If he didn't say it, he should have."
