“Moroni’s Special Promise,” Friend, December 2016 Book of Mormon Stories Moroni’s Special Promise Moroni was the son of Mormon. His father gave him the golden plates to write on. Moroni wrote down the sacrament prayers. He wrote that everything good comes from God. Moroni wrote that Jesus loves all children. He said we can pray to have love in our hearts. Moroni made a special promise. He wrote that if we read the Book of Mormon and ask God, the Holy Ghost will tell us it is true. Then Moroni buried the plates in the Hill Cumorah to keep them safe. Many years later Moroni came to earth as an angel. He showed Joseph Smith where the golden plates were buried. God blessed Joseph with the power to translate the words on the plates. Today we can read Moroni’s words in the Book of Mormon!
