The Great Apostasy

Dear Family
This is the coolest diagram that we learned this week. All of the divots are apostasies, whereas the large divot is the Great Apostasy. Catholics believe in an unbroken chain of priesthood authority, thus making the Great Apostasy non-existent and the restoration unnecessary. Our job as missionaries is to prove that the Great Apostasy happened. Each of the prophets is the prophet of that dispensation.....sorry the fire alarm just went off and we had to go outside but I think I'm deaf. There wasn't actually a fire, they were doing work on the stairs and there was too much smoke.
Anyways I just thought that diagram was way cool. Either the Catholics are right or we are right. Also, its not that the Catholics are (wrong is crossed out here) bad, they did the best they could with the light they had. They didn't have a prophet so they "were kept from the truth for they knew not where to find it." (D&C 123:12)
Anyways, I love you guys, I hope everything is going well.
