Apostle Visits New Zealand, Shares '10 Things I Know to be True'

Elder Russell M. Nelson Visits New Zealand

Last Friday [14 February] over 1,000 Latter-day Saint youth and young adults and their leaders began gathering more than two hours prior to the scheduled start of a special devotional held in the Church’s Muir Park Chapel in Hamilton.

Despite the fact that it was Valentine’s Day, the building overflowed with young people, anxious to see and hear from Elder Russell M. Nelson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who is visiting New Zealand.

Elder Nelson was accompanied by his wife, Sister Wendy Watson Nelson, Pacific Area President of the Church, Elder James J. Hamula, and Sister Joyce Hamula.

“I may not get here again,” he said. “So, I want to share the 10 things I know to be true.”

1.   That God lives
2.   That Jesus is the Christ
3.   That God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to the Prophet Joseph Smith
4.   That The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true
5.   That the Priesthood of God has been restored
6.   That the Church is led by prophets
7.   That Satan is real
8.   That the youth of Zion is a chosen generation
9.   That joy comes from keeping the commandments
10. And that the choice is yours.
