President Uchtdorf speaks to new mission presidents

On June 25, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf spoke to 173 newly called mission presidents and their wives at the 2013 Seminar for New Mission Presidents. The Second Counselor in the First Presidency spoke of his admiration and love for his unique audience and counseled them to trust the Lord and follow the promptings of the Spirit.

“You presidents have been given priesthood keys to preside over your missionaries and administer the work of sharing the gospel in your mission areas,” he said. “After all is said and done, the fruits of your labors as mission president and wife will be seen and felt in the lives of your missionaries, in the lives of those converts you will find and who accept the message, in the lives of members who are strengthened by your example and your testimony, and last, but not least, in the lives of your own family.”
