Mary Isabella Horne, Early Member of the Church
I heard him relate his
first vision when the Father and Son appeared to him. . . .
While he was relating the circumstances, the Prophet's
countenance lighted up, and so wonderful a power accompanied
his words that everybody who heard them felt his influence
and power, and none could doubt the truth of his narration.
I know that he was true to his trust, and that the
principles that he advanced and taught are true.
Gordon B. Hinckley, 15th President of the Church, 1995–present
I believe, without
reservation, in the reality of the vision [Joseph Smith]
described. From that wellspring of communication between the
God of heaven, the resurrected Redeemer of the world, and a
boy pure in heart and unschooled has grown this magnificent
and wonderful and true church which is spreading over the
earth to bless the lives of all who will hear its message.
