Welden C. Andersen

As part of the April 2023 general conference, President Dallin H. Oaks announced at the beginning of the Saturday morning session that Elder Jeffrey R. Holland would not be in attendance at the Conference Center this weekend.

Elder Holland also shared on his personal Twitter account that he and his wife Pat would not be attending general conference in person after testing positive for COVID-19.

We wish both Elder and Sister Holland a full and speedy recovery.
