Scripture

“He called me by name, and said unto me that he was a messenger sent from the presence of God to me, and that his name was Moroni; He said there was a book deposited, written upon gold plates, giving an account of the former inhabitants of this continent, and the source from whence they sprang.” —Joseph Smith—History 1:33-34

 

Quote

“Imagine my excitement to learn that these ancient people with their prophets and culture had left the Old World and traveled to the New, to become a mighty people on what is now the American continent. Their records were hidden and preserved and a little over 150 years ago were discovered, not by archaeologists, but by a teenage youth.” Derek A. Cuthbert
