    Primary leader: We have a special surprise today, children. We will be visited by an ancient prophet. Allow me to introduce Isaiah.

    Jason: That’s not really Isaiah. That’s my dad in his bathrobe.

    Primary leader: You’re right, Jason. Brother Williams has agreed to play the role of Isaiah this morning.

    Isaiah: More than 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ I prophesied of His life and Atonement. I said, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows.”*

    Isaiah: All the ancient prophets testified of Christ. Every prophet in modern times has testified of Him. President Gordon B. Hinckley testifies of Christ today.

    Isaiah: Who can tell me one reason why we read the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price? Mandy?

    Mandy: They all testify of Christ.

    Isaiah: That’s right, Mandy. And if we read them prayerfully, the Holy Ghost will touch our hearts, and we, too, will receive a testimony of Christ.
