Visit from an Apostle of the Lord

My family and I recently (last Sunday) had the opportunity to hear from one of the Lord's chosen servants on the earth today:  Elder D. Todd Christofferson.

He spoke on how we can grow our faith through repentance, prayer, reading the scriptures, obedience, and sacrifice.  His message was very candid and quite inspiring.

After the the meeting was over, all in attendance were invited to go forward and shake Elder Christofferson's hand.  I have had this opportunity with other Apostles (at least Richard G. Scott, L. Tom Perry, and the late James E. Faust) and it is always a wonderful experience:  These men are special witnesses of Jesus Christ in all the world.

I know that Elder Christofferson and the other members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apotles and First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are who they say they are.  They are authorized servants of Jesus Christ, to continue to build up His kingdom on the earth, today, in preparation for His Second Coming, and to bless all of God's children now and forever.

Here is a link to what Elder Christofferson said (speaking about the importance of Scripture) this April, in the biannual, General Conference of the Church:

That was great listening to and getting to shake his hand. It shows me that he's a genuine human being who is trying to do the right things.
