Had the opportunity to speak in another ward today about family history and temple work. It was exciting to share some of what the youth in our ward have accomplished over the past few years and how the work moves forward. While we were in the temple on Friday with the youth I felt inspired to include D&C section 4 in my talk and link it to family history work. The field of FH is equally white, and if have a desire to serve you are called to this work, too. There is something uniquely special about families attending the temple together to do work for their ancestors. If you haven't created a log in to family search- do it. Do it today, it's so easy and you won't be sorry you did. #familysearch #familyhistory #familiesareforever #templetrip #lds #ldsyouth

Psalm 43 🙌🏽 God is the source, the cause, and the essence of joy. Joy does not exist separate from Him--He is the embodiment of joy. He is joyful; we know this by experience, for when we are filled with His Holy Spirit we are also joyful. So let's pray for joy; let's ask Him for joy. Not THINGS that we think will give us joy--but JOY. Direct from the Holy Spout.

There was a special moment at Cape Town Stake's Youth Conference last weekend, when Elder Sibinda received - and opened - his mission call. He'll be serving in the Kampala Uganda mission, and he reports to the MTC next month! #lds #ldsyouth #ldsmissionary #ldsmission #mormon

No. The scientific evidence we have cannot prove or disprove the Book of Mormon. Archaeological or genetic research in the Americas, for instance, is ongoing and often raises more questions than it answers. So to draw absolute conclusions from it about the Book of Mormon (either for it or against it) is usually a bit of a stretch--and quite risky, since new evidence often comes along that refutes old conclusions. But more important, attacks against the Book of Mormon on scientific grounds are usually based on faulty assumptions about what the book claims to be. For instance, it does not claim to be a record of the ancestors of all of the native peoples across the entire Western Hemisphere, nor does it claim that the people described in it were the first or only people inhabiting the area described in it. And yet, many scientific criticisms seem to assume that the book claims exactly these things. Science is learning more and more about the ancient Americas, and that process will continue. But we shouldn’t assume that any of that research will give conclusive evidence for or against the Book of Mormon. The ultimate proof of its truth comes through sincere study and prayer and by the power of the Holy Ghost.
