A Blessed Land

Have any of you ever heard of Palmyra, New York? Or the Hill Cumorah? How about The Book of Mormon? This oil painting I did shows the view from atop the Hill Cumorah, in Palmyra, where this sacred book came forth.  A young farm boy named Joseph Smith was told by an angel about an ancient record deposited here on this hill.  In 1824 he was ready to take the record and translate it, which he did – into The Book of Mormon.  A little time after that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was organized close by – the same church of over 14 million members now who are called Mormons.  Therefore, this place is a place of great and unique importance to so many.  Not only that, it is a place so important and unique to me.  I served a year and a half mission here in western New York, and as I served full time God and His children, I gave away pieces of my heart.  Even though I’m so far away now (at school at BYU in fact), those pieces are still there.  This piece was such a pleasure to do.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
