President Uchtdorf counsels singles

A regional conference attended by more than 1,500 young single adults focused on service. Participants came to the Fort Worth Texas Stake center Sept. 18-20 primarily from the Dallas-Fort Worth area but also from congregations throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency, and his wife, Sister Harriet Uchtdorf, attended and addressed the conference on Sunday, Sept. 20. "I like the motto of your conference — 'iServe,' " President Uchtdorf said. "We live in an age of technology. I have an iPhone. It is a wonderful way to communicate and could be compared to prayer. Make sure you are always in range and on 24/7," he said. Continuing the analogy he said, "Then there is iChat, an easy way to keep in touch. This I would liken to friendship. Take advantage of the opportunity to chat and get to know one another, face to face." On dating, President Uchtdorf counseled, "I don't subscribe to the idea of soul mates or that there is only one match for you in this world. It's not about finding the right one but being the right one."
