Find the Gold Plates

Dear Friend,

My name is Jason Smallcanyon. I live in Gallup, New Mexico. I attend Gallup First Ward, Gallup New Mexico Stake. I am ten years old. My hobbies are playing games and drawing. I drew the maze for my Primary sharing time. It was fun to watch the kids help Joseph Smith find the gold plates. I am a Navajo. I have a seven-year-old brother named Corey. I sent the maze to your magazine so that other kids can try it too. Thank you, Jason [signed]
