Timothy delivered “the Gold Plates” (the prop) to Christopher.

Upon being entrusted with the gold plates and the Urim and Thummim, Christopher was instructed to take his wife, Jackie, and his two children, Brittany and Joshua and leave the State of Utah in search for a place where he could settle down, raise his family and begin the translation of the plates.  He was not told where to go or what to do, the choice always being his to make for his own instruction and learning.  He was instructed not to tell his wife or any other about his mission or the possession of the plates.  He constructed a trailer out of the back half of a pick up truck, made a secure, secret compartment for the plates and Urim and Thummim, and left the State of Utah for Jackson County, Missouri, where he thought he would settle down and start his “translation”.
