Additional Church News Reported

Hello again, everyone! There have been a few more reports on President Nelson's first South American leg of his Global Ministry Tour, the ministry of President Oaks and his traveling companions to those impacted by a recent hurricane in the southeastern United States, and other developments. So let's get right into all of those reports.

First of all, extensive coverage of President Nelson's visit to Bolivia has been provided by the Church News and the official Newsroom on the Church's website. An ongoing summary of this tour can be found here, including additional coverage as that is made available. My biggest take-away from this article was the fact that President Nelson had been scheduled to visit Bolivia earlier this year, but the passing of President Monson changed those plans. And the Lord recently instructed him to follow through on those earlier plans as he prepares for the Concepcion Chile Temple Dedication, which will occur this weekend. I will continue to provide reports of that tour as I receive them.

In the meantime, as previously mentioned, President Oaks was joined recently by several other Church leaders in a tour of the areas recently struck by Hurricane Michael in the southeastern United States. The Church News and the official Newsroom also covered those developments. And while Bishop W. Christopher Waddell, Second Counselor in the Presiding Bishopric, joined President Oaks and others in the southeastern United States, Bishop Dean M. Davies, who serves as First Counselor in the Presiding Bishopric, dedicated a new Deseret Industries in Gilbert Arizona.

It is wonderful indeed to see the leaders of the Church place such a high priority on being out among the people, whether within the United States or outside of it. As always, I continue to monitor any and all Church news and temple developments and will do my level best to keep bringing word of those to you all as I receive it.

That does it for this post. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated, on any post at any time. Thank you for the privilege of your time.
