In celebration of the primary kids receiving their very own Book of Mormon, we were visited by some ancient dignitaries last Saturday.
King Benjamin (with his loyal body guard right along side him) taught us how if we serve our fellow man then we are also serving God.
King Benjamin was even gracious enough to descend to take a picture with his lowly subjects.
Then the stripling warriors taught us how they were protected in their battle against evil because of faith in the words their mothers taught them of salvation through Jesus Christ.
Everyone was very excited to meet them and feel the strength of their convictions.
Next, the Broth of Jared shared with us his experience of talking with the Savior and seeing the Lord’s finger touch 16 stones to provide light in their ships as they crossed the ocean.
He even gave each of the kids a little pouch of stones to help them to remember his story.
Nephi told us of using this sword to obtain the Brass Plates.
Everyone even got to write on some ‘plates’ of their own.
Thanks Nephi – you are awesome!
Then Joseph Smith shared with us how he was searching for truth and when he prayed, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him to give him the knowledge he sought.
The spirit in the room was so beautiful and strong. Every heart was touched.
Then it was time to PARTY!
