General Conference Addresses

  • October 1991 General Conference
    • The Call—An Eternal Miracle
      • “Mission calls are rarely made at a convenient time. When my call came to full-time service as mission president to the nations of Uruguay and Paraguay, there were commitments of civic and business nature. All were overcome miraculously. The call was accepted. As a member of the Seventy, after more than five years I can still, as the hymn says, scarcely take it in.”
  • October 1986 General Conference
    • Touching the Hearts of Less-Active Members
      • “The Lord requires us—yes, you and me—to locate the less-active members and help them to return to the fold.”
      • “May we assure our sometimes missing friends in the Church of our Lord’s love for them and ask the Spirit of the Lord to testify through us to them of the Lord’s love for them, and our love as well, and bring them back to the fold in joy.”
