...let us labor diligently: for if we should cease to labor, we should be brought under condemnation for we have a labor to perform whilst in this tabernacle of clay, that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God. Moroni 9:6

During our May Zone Conference, we stopped to visit Quirigua which one of the 1st archeological sites discovered in the Americas in 1840. Joseph Smith suggested (in Times and Seasons, Oct 1, 1841) that Quirigua was a possible candidate for the City of Zarahemla or some other Book of Mormon City. Quirigua is one of these famous Classic Maya cities that post dates Book of Mormon times, however, recent excavations in the deep alluvial flood deposits have uncovered extensive ruins that do date back into Book of Mormon times.
