“Moroni Saved the Scriptures for Us,” Book of Mormon Stories for Young Readers, 2020
“Moroni Saved the Scriptures for Us”
The prophet Mormon put together a book about Jesus. He wrote it on gold plates. Before he died, Mormon asked his son Moroni to take care of the book.
Moroni did what his father asked. He kept the plates safe. Sometimes he had to hide from wicked people. He was often lonely. But he knew the book was very important.
Jesus showed Moroni how the book would help many people in our time. Moroni added his testimony to the plates. He wrote to us as if we were there with him.
God told Moroni to bury the plates to keep them safe. Many years later, Joseph Smith translated them. Now they are printed as the Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon was written for me! It can help me with any problem. It is a gift from God.
