Two Apostles to Mark Their Birthdays in September

Hello again, everyone! While I have no desire to take focus away from the conversation about recently-covered topics in previous posts on this blog, at the same time, in view of the other subjects I will be covering within the next 10-14 days (including ongoing Church news and any temple developments), I wanted to take some time in the early-morning hours of the last day of August 2018 to provide some thoughts about the two apostolic birthdays which will be observed within the first 10 days of September.

The two apostles in question will actually be observing their birthdays a mere day apart. Elder Quentin L. Cook will be marking his 78th birthday on September 8. The very next day, our beloved prophet, President Russell M. Nelson, will observe his 94th birthday.

And it is interesting to consider that in the week before his birthday, President Nelson will be making the aforementioned trip to Puerto Rico. Also, as already noted, on President Nelson's 94th birthday, Elder Cook will be joined by two representatives from the Church History Department in holding a Face-to-Face event for Young Adults that will introduce the new 4-volume Church history series Saints and allow young adults to have questions answered by the three.

Additionally, looking ahead to things coming up later in September, the open house for the Concepcion Chile Temple will, as previously noted, begin on September 15 and will last until October 13 (excluding General Conference weekend and Sunday September 16, 23 and 30). It would appear that open house reservations were first made available on Tuesday July 10 and continue to be available through October 13.

As always, I continue to monitor all Church news and temple developments and will, to the best of my ability, provide coverage of it all as I receive word of it. That does it for this post. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated. If you enjoyed what you read here and would like to stay informed of newly-added content, please feel free to subscribe. Until my next post, I wish each one of you all the best and pray that the Lord will bless you all in everything you do.
