I, Linda A Gould, testify to the following experience, when I inquired abut the truth of the plates:  On December 16, 2017, in a meeting held at C. Andrew (Andy) and Carol Brantner's home.  During that meeting Brother Joseph F.  Smith showed up and was speaking of holding the plates in his hands when in Brazil, and suddenly I saw light descend onto his hands as he held them out as if he were holding the plates once more. It was just as if he were actually holding the plates and the Lord was telling me, "These are the true plates."  Joseph's hand were glowing.  Only I saw this manifestation as far as I know.  I took this to mean the plates in Brazil were the true plates.  When Samuel returned from Brazil, and said the plates were the true plates, I said, "Lord, is this true?"  The Lord responded, "Haven't I already shown you that they are true?" Thus did I accept the plates as the real thing.  Linda A. Gould   April 8, 2018  (Minnesota, heritage - Temple Lot)

This work is the "refreshing" of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in these last days brought first through Joseph Smith Jr and comes again through Maurício Berger. This website will post truth irrespective of its conduit. "All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it, to act for itself, as all intelligence also, otherwise there is no existence"  D&C 90:5b RLDS or D&C 93:30 LDS.  Therefore,  postings on this website should be viewed as the endorsement of truth—speaking generally and not specifically for each word, action, person or organization. "And righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine own elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare; an holy city, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion; a New Jerusalem." Genesis 7:70
