Two Apostles of the Lord in Asia

Recently Elders Jeffrey R. Holland and David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints toured Asia, along with Elder Jay E. Jenson of the Presidency of the Seventy.  According to the Church News, Elder Holland visited members in Hong Kong, India, and Mongolia.  Elder Bednar traversed the lands of Hong Kong, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan.  While in Indonesia, Elder Bednar organized the Jakarta Indonesia Stake.  According to the Church News, "The Brethren conducted question-and-answer sessions in many meetings, including some that were broadcast to distant congregations.  Such exchanges helped the visiting Brethren learn of the specific challenges facing the Church in each country even as they shared welcome counsel with members and missionaries."

"Area reviews also offer opportunities for the visiting Brethren and area leadership to meet with thousands of members in priesthood leadership conferences, stake conferences, young single adult devotionals and missionary meetings", reported the Church News

This is all good news, especially after the devistating earthquakes in Japan a few short months ago.  The Church takes care of its own, and area reviews such as this are evidence thereto.  All these proceedings are done through revelation.  I know the Book of Mormon is true and is from God.  Jesus is the Christ and Joseph Smith is His prophet, who himself helped establish Christ's Church again on the earth, which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I know that we, too, can be instruments in moving forward the work of the Lord, as have Elders Holland and Bednar of the Twelve.  In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
