WHEN: Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at 11:00 am MST
WHERE: This event is broadcasted live from the Joseph Smith’s Farm in Palmyra, New York where a 14-year-old Joseph Smith, Jr. experienced the First Vision following a heartfelt prayer. A very fitting location given this year’s mutual theme, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.” (James 1:5)
“Most youth of the Church across the world will never have the chance to visit Palmyra, New York, in person, but I hope that participating in this event will help some of them feel as if they are there,” said President Eyring. “I hope they will feel the spirit of this quiet, holy place and perhaps gain a stronger testimony of what took place here on a spring day in 1820.”
BONUS: Ten minutes before the event, an exclusive world premier video of the First Vision will be shown called, “Ask of God.” The video will be available to download and share following the event.
