Noah's 1st Primary Talk

Noah had his first primary talk in May and he did a great job. The topic was "The Church of Jesus Christ has been Restored". Jon helped him write the words and then he came up with the pictures he wanted to draw and share for each paragraph. Grandpa-pa was even there for the big event.
1-Jesus Christ led his church when he was on the earth with his 12 apostles.

2-After Jesus and his 12 apostles had died, there was no one left to lead the church and the church of Jesus Christ was not on the earth for many years.

3-Then, a boy named Joseph Smith prayed and asked Heavenly Father which church he should join. Heavenly Father and Jesus answered his prayer by visiting him and telling him that they wanted him to restore the church of Jesus Christ. To restore means "to bring something back the same as it was before."

4-Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet. He translated the Book of Mormon. Heavenly Father sent John the Baptist and some of Jesus' apostles to restore the priesthood that Jesus and the apostles had when Jesus was on the earth. This meant that people could be baptized, receive the Holy Ghost and go to the temple.

5-Today, our church still has the priesthood and we are led by a prophet named Thomas S. Monson who Heavenly Father tells what to teach us so we can be happy and return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ some day.

6-I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored church of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
