Hebrew Book of Mormon | Chronicles of the Nephites

Hebrew Book of Mormon | Chronicles of the Nephites

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has no official Hebrew Book of Mormon translation. While I was serving a mission in Florida, my mission president was helping some Elders to teach a man from Israel, he asked for a Hebrew Book of Mormon. The mission president could not find one.Why is there no Hebrew translation for the Book of Mormon? Technically there is a translation, however, the Community of Christ (Reorganized Church) has a translation, which can be purchased and it quite the rare find.  The Church does not have an official translation, but the questions remain why....

Eagle Scout - Old Traditions Die Hard

Eagle Scout - Old Traditions Die Hard

I am an Eagle Scout and am proud to sit in the Eagles nest, I love scouting, I really do regardless, the Lord has spoken through his chosen servants to end the scouting program.
