"The fulness of the gospel, too, Its pages will reveal to view"

sAt Dartmouth College founded in 1769 in Hanover, New Hampshire is found an original copy of the Book of Mormon.  We had the privilege of going to the archive library there and reading from its pages.  "We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon - a second witness along with the Bible of Jesus Christ-- to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true." (Introduction, Book of Mormon)  At the zone conferences in February, we focused on seeking answers to the great "questions of the soul."       
 Of his experience at the zone conference, one missionary wrote: " So my entire life I haven't really known that the book of mormon was true but I always just went along with it. During Zone Conference I got an overwhelming feeling that it is true and that I am doing the right thing in my life right now. "
old hands hold much older book


Elder Esplin really is as enthusiastic as the picture
portrays about the message of the Book of Mormon

Yes, this is a photo by a professional photographer in Brewer, Maine.
It captures the desire of Elders Neibergull and Esplin to share
their witness that, "a man (woman) would get closer to God by abiding by its [the Book of Mormon]
 precepts than by any other book." (Introduction)
