Many members of the Church know the stories of the Three and Eight Witnesses, but far fewer know about the "unofficial" witnesses to the plates. Among their ranks, Mary Whitmer stands out. Not only were her personal sacrifices indispensable in moving the translation forward, but she was blessed with the appearance of an angelic messenger that showed her the plates themselves. We may not receive a divine manifestation like Mary's, but her story shows that the Lord is mindful of all his children, and blesses us each in our own way.
