In June of 1829, Mary Whitmer hired Sally Conrad to help her around the house. While there, she often saw Joseph and Oliver “come down from the translating room several times when they looked so exceedingly white and strange” that she asked Mary Whitmer what was going on. Mary explained that Joseph and Oliver were translating a sacred record from golden plates, “and that the power of God was so great in the room that they could hardly endure it.” Mary’s explanation satisfied Sally, who eventually joined the church because of her experiences. As with Joseph and Oliver, the spiritual light the Book of Mormon brings into our lives can also bring others to the truth.
