Lengths of Talks Given by Apostles During the October 2018 General Conference

Hello again, everyone! Given the high volume of things I have passed along here this month, particularly leading up to and following General Conference, with the ministry of our apostles, and the temple developments and Church news, I inadvertently neglected to pass along the compilation of data I had collected on the lengths of the General Conference addresses given by our apostles earlier this month.

That data follows below, and I hope it will interest at least some of you. So as not to disturb the flow of that information, I will end here and now as I always do. 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. 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.
