Big Questions


Hello and welcome to a day in the life of Wilford Woodruff! Today I will be reading a journal entry from May 11, 1845. It reads,

“I met with the saints in the capacity of a quarterly conference. We met in the afternoon. I blessed the bread & wine & it was administered to the Saints after which the time was taken up by the Brethren & Sisters in bearing testimony of the work of God. The Power of God rested upon the congregation until it melted us into tears. This is the conference that Brother Kimball speaks of in his journal. I never saw a more lovely people in my travels in the vineyard. They are like angels innocent as lambs & like children. I did not wonder Elder Kimball cried when he left them for I was so overwhelmed with the spirit & power of God & simplicity of the people I could scarcely speak. Many bore their testimony of the work of God & others desired it if there had been time it was truly an interesting time. We adjourned until 6 o'clock.”

How can you share your testimony with those around you, like the Saints did in this conference?
