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!
