Our speakers for the May 15 dinner meeting will be Mark and Scott Gubler, who will be discussing the fascinating search for Nephi’s Bountiful as recorded in the Book of Mormon. They and a cadre of 23 scientists, archaeologists, and other inter-disciplinary researchers have made several visits to what many agree is the best candidate for the city Bountiful in Oman at Khor Kharfot. 

The Gubler's have two major hypotheses:

  1. Khor Kharfot is Nephi’s Bountiful and
  2. There is an Israelite sanctuary there built with the sacred geometry found in Solomon’s Temple. The search area is a one mile stretch of beach littered with archeological relics.

They are trying to reconstruct how this land may have looked 2600 years ago and what relics might still be left. The project is being financed by private contributions.  For more information on this amazing project, go to
