Dear family and friends,
"The short answer is this: In 1820, a young man by the name of Joseph Smith went into a grove of trees in upstate New York to pray. He wanted to know which church he should join. There he saw God, our Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. Joseph was told he should join none of the churches. But he was told that through him, the Church that Christ had established while He was on the earth would be restored. This restoration would be through a process of revelation." (and it is through revelation that we know . . .)-Elder Dale G. Renlund.These are such powerful words that each and every one of us can use to explain our testimonies. I have loved studying more about the Book of Mormon this week and gaining a stronger testimony of it. I know that it is the key to our religion. If the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, he received the priesthood, he received revelation to be able to restore Christ's church on the earth. We are part of Christ's church.

I just want to ask all of you to keep Rita in your prayers. She is trying so hard to stay close to God, but still so many challenges keep coming up! Pray for her granddaughter too, she was just in a car accident!
