Guess Who Shared the Gospel?
Book of Mormon Prophets’ crossmatch
Remind youth of some of the prophets through the ages who shared the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. Here they can read the scriptures and imagine what it would be like to be a prophet—who was sometimes the only one preaching the gospel. From this activity youth can learn ways they can prepare themselves to share the gospel with others.
To Do Cross Match: Read the description and guess who the prophet is and the missing words. Read the scriptures by the prophet’s name to make sure you are right. Write in the prophet’s name and the missing words. Draw a line from the description to the prophet. Answers (top to bottom): Alma, prayer, Spirit, Lehi, visions, dreams, Abinadi, repent, turn, enemies, Noah, repent, not, destroy, Daniel, den, lions, believed, angel, lions’ mouths, Nephi, no, prepare, Moses, deliver, Israel, bondage, 430, Enos, record, Nephites, Lamanites.
TO MAKE: Print activity in color or black and white; and then color.
TESTIMONY SHARING: The following week ask youth to share their testimony on the following. Click on the following website objective to introduce the testimony sharing (that follows): Why do we need the Book of Mormon? “The Book of Mormon was written for our day. It testifies of Jesus Christ, contains the fulness of His gospel, and restores truths lost through the Apostasy. Joseph Smith taught that the Book of Mormon is “the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book” (introduction to the Book of Mormon).”
Additional Learning Activity:
Go on an imaginary or real canoe ride (on blankets or on water) with someone you would like to get to know better, e.g., a Laurel with a Beehive, or Mia Maid with a Beehive. When you return, report one thing that impressed you about your partner. Talk about getting to know another person before you begin this activity, what to say, how to develop a friendship, and how to help another person feel comfortable. After youth have shared their comments about the canoe trip, talk about how they might fellowship someone who is not active or a nonmember.
