President Nelson Issues Second Invitation in Bicentennial Year, "Hear Him"

President Russell M. Nelson posted a video across social media platforms Wednesday morning issuing his second invitation of 2020.

"In this special year as we commemorate the 200th anniversary of the First Vision, I invite you to think deeply and often about this key question: How do you hear Him? I also invite you to take steps to hear Him better and more often," President Nelson said in the video.

President Nelson explains that Heavenly Father "loves us and yearns for each one of us to choose to return to His holy presence. He pleads with us to listen to the voice of Jesus Christ, whom the Father anointed and appointed as our Mediator, Savior, and Redeemer." 

He also shares an invitation for us to be proactive in sharing feelings about Jesus Christ with family and friends, and to invite friends to worship Him on Easter Sunday. 

Earlier this year, President Nelson issued an invitation to share the restored gospel in preparation for April 2020 general conference. 

"We invite you to be a major part of sharing the message of the ongoing restoration of the Savior's gospel," President Nelson wrote in the post. "We will share more about this soon, but you can start today by acting on the invitations I extended to you last general conference to immerse yourself in the glorious light of the Restoration."
