LDS youth visit significant sites
The youth of the Gastonia Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had a chance this summer to visit and learn more about the history of the LDS church. Approximately 180 youth and 40 adults (including from Huntersville, Cornelius and Mooresville) traveled to upstate New York and Pennsylvania to visit sacred and significant historical sites for their youth conference.
According to a news release about the trip, among the places visited was the place the prophet Joseph Smith, the first prophet of the LDS church, had a vision of God and his son Jesus Christ. While the focus of the church is on Jesus Christ, those who learn about the LDS church or who grew up in the church are faced to answer the question, “Did Joseph Smith really see and hear what he claimed?”
“Youth conference impacted my testimony and love for Joseph Smith through being able to see all the challenges, trials and adversity he and other early members of the church went through,” Sophie Poulton of Cornelius said in the release.
