Receiving a Testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ

[Listen to this episode] [Subscribe to the MP3 feed via iTunes]

Robert D. Hales describes the simple process of gaining a testimony. We can learn the basic steps from the example of Joseph Smith's preparation for the First Vision and other heavenly ministrations. Each major event of the Restoration has been preceded by prayer. One may begin this process by following the admonition of Moroni at the end of his book (see Moroni 10:3-5). (18 minutes)

Elder Robert D. Hales is a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

the mp3 for this podcast does not exist. Could you correct this? This is an important episode.

Thank you very much for pointing that out, Richard. It looks like the Church recently changed the URL for that file. I discovered that the two preceding episodes which were hosted on a BYU server also needed to have their URLs updated, so I fixed those too.

As of last night the podcast feed should be fully working again, and as of a few minutes ago all the MP3 links on the site should work again as well.

Thanks again for pointing this out.
