On the day the Church was organized, April 6, 1830, the Lord commanded that a record should be kept. Since that time, the Church has collected records from around the world, gathering and preserving information, testimonies, and memories that might otherwise be lost. Appropriately sharing this Church history helps bring people closer to Christ, strengthens their resolve to live the gospel, and can provide them with patterns for overcoming adversity.
