A new 2015 lecture series sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will begin starting this Thursday, February 12. The series, which focuses on "Pioneers in Every Land," will begin with an address by Elder James J. Hamula, of the First Quorum of the Seventy and President of the Pacific Area.

Elder Hamula's remarks will introduce this year's lecture series them and cover the topic, "To Every Nation, Kindred, Tongue, and People":

"No longer an organization made up mostly of U.S. members, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has spread from Tahiti to Taiwan. Latter-day Saint men and women are building the kingdom of God all over the world. Hear their stories, feel their challenges, and be inspired by their faith."

Interested parties can attend the live lectures, which are scheduled to be given every second Thursday at 7pm in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square. Free parking will be available at the Conference Center.
