Elder Nelson Visits


In February, Elder Nelson, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles* visited Guam. He held a special missionary visit with the Micronesia Guam Mission. Elder Nelson then spoke in Stake Conference. Eric said it was an honor to be strengthened by such a great leader.

 He is pictured below with the Mission leadership. 

*The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is the second-highest governing body in the Church (the First Presidency being the highest). Apostles are special witnesses of Jesus Christ, called to teach and testify of Him throughout the world. They travel frequently, addressing and encouraging large congregations of members and interested nonmembers, as well as meeting with local leaders.
When they are not traveling, members of the Quorum of the Twelve counsel together and with other general Church leaders on matters affecting the worldwide Church, such as missionary work, temple building, spiritual and temporal welfare, and much more.
