“Latter-day Prophets Matching Game,” Friend, Nov. 2003, 46
Heavenly Father has blessed us with prophets to lead us in these latter days. President Gordon B. Hinckley is the fifteenth prophet of the Church. You can play this matching game in family home evening to learn something about each of these prophets.
Instructions: Remove pages 46–47 and mount them on lightweight cardboard. Cut out the pictures of the prophets and the descriptions, then place them faceup. A player picks a prophet, then matches it with a description (others can help, if needed). Repeat until all the prophets have been selected.
