I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me...When the light rested upon me, I saw two personages (whose brightness and glory defy all description) standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name, and said (pointing to the other), This is my beloved Son; hear him.
—Joseph Smith, Jr.
2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the encounter that has come to be known as Joseph Smith's First Vision. Two hundred years ago, in the early spring of 1820, a young boy took the message found in scripture to heart and sought an answer from God. The event that followed would forever change the history of the world. The heavens were opened and God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph in answer to his humble prayer. This event marked the beginning of a new era of restoration, in which God once again speaks to man.
We are excited to celebrate this world-changing event by inviting the various branches of the Restoration to come together in remembrance of the First Vision. We look forward to hearing from a variety of speakers speaking on the First Vision and other topics related to the Restoration.
Please join us this year for the third annual Restoration Conference held on Saturday June 20, 2020 in Meridian, Idaho!
