The announcement of three new temples and a call for Mormons everywhere to plan and participate in a "Day of Service" highlighted Saturday's first day of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' 181st Annual General Conference.

A total of 19 talks were given during Saturday's three sessions at the LDS Conference Center — the morning and afternoon general sessions and the evening priesthood session for males ages 12 and older.
