Undying Desire To Witness For Christ

And it is many hundred years after the coming of Christ
that I deliver these records into the hands of my son;
and it supposeth me that he will witness
the entire destruction of my people.

But may God grant that he may survive them,
that he may write somewhat concerning them,
and somewhat concerning Christ,
that perhaps some day it may profit them.
(Words of Mormon 1:2)
