'One in a Million' feature spotlights Primary children

Dispersed throughout the worldwide Church, they form a mosaic of youthful purity and faith. They are the children of Primary, about a million strong, and their stories are reflected in a new online feature offered by the Friend magazine at www.lds.org/friend.

The feature celebrates the fact that each is a special child of God, said Jan Pinborough, assistant managing editor of the magazine. "Each segment is a 60-90 second video slide show featuring a child from somewhere in the world," she explained.

For example, Danil in Ukraine tells of going with his family to attend the cornerstone ceremony portion of the dedication of the new temple in Kyiv. There, President Thomas S. Monson invited him to place some of the mortar for the cornerstone. "He told me, 'You will be a missionary, and you will be a good missionary,' " Danil relates. "In my soul, a feeling came that the Spirit was covering me and I felt a very strong love of God. ... It's been more than a week since we left, but I still have that feeling."
