Apostles Visit Church Members in India and Hong Kong

Two apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints visited Church members in India and Hong Kong to extend their love and blessings. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland visited Latter-day Saints in India on 22 May 2011, and Elder Holland was accompanied by Elder David A. Bednar on a visit to Hong Kong on 25 May 2011.

The goal of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is to train local priesthood leaders on every continent and become personally acquainted with the unique challenges and needs of members from dozens of cultures. The Church now has more than 14 million members, most of whom live outside of the United States.

In India, Elder Holland held a conference with local priesthood leaders, and leaders in Lahore, Pakistan, participated via video conference and members in 25 other locations listened through webcasts.
