Cover: The Light of His Countenance Did Shine upon Them, by Gary L. Kapp.

Inside front cover: They Did Treat Me with Much Harshness, by Walter Rane. On the ship journeying to the promised land, Laman and Lemuel became angry with Nephi, saying, “We will not that our younger brother shall be a ruler over us.” Nephi records, “Laman and Lemuel did take me and bind me with cords, and they did treat me with much harshness” (1 Ne. 18:10–11).

Inside back cover: Las Vegas Temple, by Mitch Johnson. Temples are places where Latter-day Saints worship so that in due time they may come to the Father and receive of His fulness (see D&C 93:19). The building of temples in our day is the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy that “in the last days … the Lord’s house shall be established … and all nations shall flow unto it” (Isa. 2:2).
