The Missionary Work Throughout the Dispensations by gerugeon The Missionary Work Throughout the Dispensations by gerugeon
This was the drawing I sent to the 9th International Art Competition of my Church, whose theme was "Make Known his wonderful works", inspired by D&C 65:4: "Pray unto the Lord, call upon his holy name, make known his wonderful works among the people.".

I decided to portray the missionary work and the growth of the Church throughout the ages: a prophet of the Old Testament, a lamanite missionary; Samuel Smith, the first missionary to be called in this last dispensation, and a missionary of these latter days. Can you identify the other scenes I drew?

Unfortunately I did not pass to the next stage, but that's okay, because I had the privilege to attend the Ceremony of awards by satellite transmission, and I could strengthen my testimony of Jesus Christ and of the Church while making this drawing. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church. This is a work inspired by God.

A tip: the next contest will be hold in 2015, and the theme will be "Tell Me the Stories of Jesus". It is never too early to start thinking about a drawing ... And this year, until June, the Church will be accepting entries for the 1st Art Competition for young people. Good Luck!

I miss the feeling of having a companion :iconforeveraloneplz: I'm still looking for my eternal companion, which is not easy as I've thought :/

Well, when you are a young adult, looking for an eternal companion is surely a challenge. It may not be easy, but the wait will be worthwhile. Do not give up! I am trying to be patient as well and to do the best that I can do for now, which is to concentrate on college =D

Quite a jump in style between "Lamanite" and "Restoration". I guess that's why it was the -great- apostasy.
