"We invite you to be a major part of sharing the message of the ongoing restoration of the Savior's gospel," President Nelson wrote in the post. "We will share more about this soon, but you can start today by acting on the invitations I extended to you last general conference to immerse yourself in the glorious light of the Restoration." - President Nelson January 2020
At the end of the October 2019 General Conference, President Nelson urged members to prepare for the April 2020 General Conference, marking it as a bicentennial year for the Church since the Joseph Smith's First Vision occurred 200 years ago. In his closing remarks he said:
"It is your personal preparation that will help April's general conference become for you not only memorable but also unforgettable. The time to act is now. This is a hinge point in the history of the Church, and your part is vital."
President Nelson asked members to ask themselves questions pertaining to their life and the Gospel; one of them being:
“How would my life be different if my knowledge gained from the Book of Mormon were suddenly taken away?”
In a Facebook post, President Nelson said:
"You may wish to begin your preparation by reading afresh Joseph Smith’s account of the First Vision as recorded in the Pearl of Great Price."
As well, he asked us to ponder the questions: "How have the events that followed the First Vision made a difference for me and my loved ones?"
"God loves all of His children and has a vision for each of us. Just as He listened to Joseph’s prayer in 1820, He listens to you and yearns to speak with you through the Spirit. We invite you to be a major part of sharing the message of the ongoing restoration of the Savior’s gospel. We will share more about this soon, but you can start today by acting on the invitations I extended to you at last general conference to immerse yourself in the glorious light of the Restoration."
President Nelson promised that as we do these things, "general conference next April will not only be memorable, it will be unforgettable."
