From the first venture up the
mountainside of Cerro Rabon
in 2001, members of the
Buckner Congregation of the
Community of Christ church
were hooked.  They stood in the
shadow of the mountain that
holds the ancient records of
Book of Mormon.  An array
of archaeological evidence
gives empirical support to this

No longer was it a mythical
concept that the plates are
located in some hill in Mexico.  
These men had ventured to the
mountain and seen the
evidence of the geography, and
more importantly, felt the
impress of God’s Spirit
whispering that this was
indeed a place of great
significance.  Faith had now
transformed into knowledge.

No longer could these men sit
still.  They felt a growing inner
desire to place themselves in a
position to be instruments of
God’s peace.  It was time to
express their faith through
action.  They began to organize
and plan for an expedition to
find these records.  The spring
of 2002 was the first official

The lessons from each
expedition are brought back
and incorporated into the
planning for the next.  This has
been a growing experience for
each participant.  Please
browse through the
expeditions captured here in
photos, testimonies and
inspiration.   Journey with us
and see how God has quietly,
patiently, and wonderfully
revealed His will.
