The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.

In honor of Thanksgiving Day tomorrow, we're publishing an excerpt from Corrie Ten Boom's autobiographical book "The Hiding Place." It's a spot-on illustration of what it's like to give thanks in everything (1 Thes. 5:18), even misery. It's kind of long but worth the read.
At this point in the narrative, which takes place during WWII, Corrie and her sister Betsie have arrived at the Ravensbruck concentration camp, where they are assigned to Barracks 28.

"Fleas!" I cried. "Betsie, the place is swarming with them!"
