“It was a fact that I had beheld a vision. I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two Personages, and they did in reality speak to me;... it was true. I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it.” Enjoy the inspiring short film #AskofGod youtu.be/RBvk_6_dW6k, a stunning portrayal of the Prophet #JosephSmith’s #FirstVision.
