Elder Bednar at Stake Conference

August 17, 2015

Elder David Bednar, an apostle, spoke at our local church Stake Conference last week.  Yes, it was packed!  He is so personable and wise.  We were on duty at the Visitors' Center Sunday morning so we missed that meeting.  On Saturday evening he reminded us that unity is a prerequisite to revelation, that the power of Godliness is manifest in the ordinances, and as covenant saints we have agency only to choose good and serve each other, not to do whatever we want.  A lot to think about. I believe the organization of the church is inspired and the words of the apostles and prophets will save us from needless suffering if heeded.  It was a blessing to be there. It was also a blessing to be at the Visitors' Center on Sunday morning (9 to 3 shift). We hosted 4 touring busses with French visitors who took 10 French copies of the Book of Mormon home with them. That day we also shared 4 German, 4 Dutch, 1 Japanese and 2 English copies of the Book of Mormon.  We are flooding the earth with the truths of the restored gospel as President Ezra Taft Benson asked.  It makes me happy!
