Mormon Minute: Weekly News Recap for October 7, 2015

1025’s Mormon Minute recaps LDS news that’s happening in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This week, we talk about: the 3 new Apostles called to the Quorum of the Twelve, and the reopening of the Church History museum.

00:07 – Calling of Three Apostles

Three Apostles were called during the Saturday afternoon session of general conference to fill the seats of President Packer, Elder Perry, and Elder Scott. Elder Ronald A. Rasband, Gary E. Stevenson, and Dale G. Renlund were the 98th, 99th, and 100th Apostles called since the church’s formation. Each man brings a unique set of experiences and background to the quorum.

“My testimony of Jesus Christ has been built from many special experiences where I have come to know his great love for each one of us,” said Elder Rasband.

“God is our loving heavenly father, we are his children. He weeps with us when we suffer and rejoices when we do what is right,” said Elder Stevenson.

“I witness that He in the anointed one, the messiah. I am a witness of his incomparable mercy, compassion and love,” said Elder Renlund.

00:58 – Church History museum Reopens

And the Church History museum is now open to the public after closing a year ago for renovations. The museum is located on Temple Square and now includes interactive exhibits about the  translation of the Book of Mormon, the Relief Society organization, and missionary work.
