Joseph Stores Grain in Egypt
Joseph was thirty years old when he was appointed as the governor of Egypt. During the seven years of rich harvest, he went out into all the cities and collected one fifth of the crops. The crops that Joseph collected were stored in the cities.
Joseph collected so much grain that the store rooms became full. They stop keeping track of it because there was so much grain.
Before the seven years of famine came, Joseph and his wife, Asenath, had two sons and named them Ephraim and Manasseh.
The seven years of famine began, just as Joseph had said. There was famine in all of the lands, except in Egypt where there was food because of the grain Joesph had stored.
Joseph started to sell grain to the people from the storehouses. The famine was severe everywhere in the world. When the people heard Egypt had food, they traveled there to buy food from Joseph.
