Helaman is 9 years-old.
He wants to be a missionary like his older siblings, but he doesn’t want to wait until he’s older.
So he took matters into his own hands with the help of his parents and bore a powerful and emotional testimony about the Book of Mormon, and the role of Christ in our lives. He then published it on YouTube, and still two years later, it is being shared around the world.
Helaman was named after Helaman in the Book of Mormon, and he recounts the story of the stripling warriors and the great faith they had because of their knowledge of Jesus Christ.
At the time of the recording of this video, Helaman’s brother was serving in Japan and his sister was serving in Pennsylvania.
While only 9 years-old, Helaman was quoting scripture and teaching with the wisdom of an adult. He spoke of trials and hard times that we all go through, and how those trials are given to us to make us stronger.
Helaman’s wish is coming true – his efforts in sharing his testimony have already made him a worldwide missionary. His video has been shared in a session of Stake Conference, and others are sharing his testimony with their grandchildren.
Here are just a few comments from those who have seen his video.
If you would like to learn more about the Book of Mormon, I bet Helaman would love for you to have a free one. You can request a free Book of Mormon >> here.
