Jeff is correct, but let me add some slight of hand here. Whenever you use the phrase "to do something" it makes the sentence less dynamic.  Instead, you can often make the phrase into a sentence of its own using an active verb.

After the death of Moses, Joshua took command of the Israelites. He led them into the promised land.
