Apostolic Message

The whole complex was abuzz with members and visitors excitedly waiting for Elder Russel M. Nelson. The Temple schedule of sessions was slightly change to timed in for the visit. Patrons checked in at the Housing were excited and felt blessed for the chance of having to attend to the devotional and hear the Apostle. To them, their trip to perform ordinances in the temple is already a wonderful experience and to listen to an Apostle was overwhelming. It did not take an hour to fill all the seats as soon the doors were opened early on. Classrooms were set up for a closed circuit TV viewing to accommodate the already jampacked audience at the Stake Center sacrament/cultural hall. 
Primary children took the spotlight as they were asked by Elder Nelson to stand and sing for him the 1st stanza of  "I Am a Child of God".
