- Adam-ondi-Ahman, Daviess County, Missouri
Adam-ondi-Ahman, Daviess County, Missouri is the location where Adam lived after he was driven out of the Garden of Eden. It was also the location of the meeting recorded in D&C 107, before the death of Adam. Prior to the Second Coming, Adam and his righteous posterity, which includes Saints of all dispensations, will meet with the Savior in this valley. Adam will make his report and Christ will be received as the rightful ruler of the earth.
The term Adam-Ondi-Ahman is from the Adamic language (See Meaning of the Name).

An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi
Wherefore, it is an abridgment of the record of the people of Nephi, and also of the Lamanites—Written to the Lamanites, who are a remnant of the house of Israel; and also to Jew and Gentile—Written by way of commandment, and also by the spirit of prophecy and of revelation—Written and sealed up, and hid up unto the Lord, that they might not be destroyed—To come forth by the gift and power of God unto the interpretation thereof—Sealed by the hand of Moroni, and hid up unto the Lord, to come forth in due time by way of the Gentile—The interpretation thereof by the gift of God.
An abridgment taken from the Book of Ether also, which is a record of the people of Jared, who were scattered at the time the Lord confounded the language of the people, when they were building a tower to get to heaven—Which is to show unto the remnant of the house of Israel what great things the Lord hath done for their fathers; and that they may know the covenants of the Lord, that they are not cast off forever—And also to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God, manifesting himself unto all nations—And now, if there are faults they are the mistakes of men; wherefore, condemn not the things of God, that ye may be found spotless at the judgment-seat of Christ.

“As I have said to you before, so I say again, the Constitution of the United States is a great and treasured part of my religion, and the revelations of the Lord and the words of our inspired leaders compel it to be so. The overturning, or the material changing, or the distortion of any fundamental principle of our constitutional government would thus do violence to my religion.” (pg. 70, Stand Fast by our Constitution, J. Reubon Clark Jr.)
