Pres. Uchtodorf says the call to teach is an opportunity to follow the Master

"Each of us, at some time during our membership in the Church, will be a teacher," said President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency. "That is one of the beauties of this Church. The call to teach is an opportunity to follow Jesus Christ, the Master Teacher."

Speaking to seminary, institute, BYU, BYU-Idaho, BYU-Hawaii and LDS Business College teachers gathered in the Tabernacle on Temple Square in Salt Lake City as well as an audience of more than 42,000 volunteers throughout the world via broadcast, President Uchtdorf addressed the topic of the great responsibility seminary, institute and religion instructors have in teaching the rising generation.

"As teachers in seminary or institute, you are privileged to help the rising generation walk toward eternity in the footsteps of the Savior," President Uchtdorf said. "Perhaps you do not always realize how far your influence reaches into the lives of those you teach. The positive impact of seminary and institute might not be readily apparent to those involved in the day-to-day work. Nevertheless, don't underestimate what the Lord is doing through you. When one stands back and looks across a longer period of time, it is obvious that much has been accomplished, and that is very gratifying."
