Church Gives Australian Prime Minister a Priceless Gift

Prime Minister Tony Abbott was presented with a framed family tree and three folders of research on Friday 22 May by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that detail his family history over hundreds of years.

The presentation was made in the Prime Minister's residence by Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Church's Quorum of Twelve Apostles and Elder Kevin W. Pearson, president of the Church's Pacific Area.

They were accompanied by David Cray, the Church's director of government and interfaith relations in Australia.

Elder Cook said: "Prime Minister Abbott's history is rich with examples of faith, love of family, leadership and service. We were honoured to present Mr Abbott with his family history."
