The Coming Forth of the Gold Plates

Here is a picture of Moroni being place on the Gila Valley Temple in Arizona.  It took place today, September 22, 2009 in memory of the anniversary of Moroni's appearance to the Prophet Joseph Smith.

It is important to note that the Gold Plates, that contained the writings of the Book of Mormon, were delivered to the Prophet Joseph Smith on Rosh Hashana a Jewish Holiday.  Lenet Hadley Read wrote an article in the Ensign which explained the significance of this event (click here for article). Tomorrow (September 22) is the anniversary of the coming forth of the Gold Plates.   This event has blessed many lives and will yet bless the lives of many more.
