Mission information taken from "Arza Adams, Chronicle of a Pioneer" by Effie W. Adams. Arza responded to the missionary call he had in January and left for a mission to Canada on July 11, 1839.  Upon a request from his wife, he returned home to Quincy, Illinois on June 5, 1840.  It is also reported that Arza left Nauvoo on Jan 25 1843 for a mission to Canada and returned June 27, 1843.  No mention is made in his journals of a mission to Canada in 1841.  He was called on a mission to Green River during a conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah on February, 25, 1856.  The call to the Green River Mission meant a call to settle and build up Fort Supply. However, because of the knowledge of Johnston's army coming to the valley, Fort Supply was abandoned and burned.
