Guess what Elder Neil L. Andersen’s favorite job was on the dairy farm where he grew up? Taking care of the rabbits! Here are some other fun facts about him.

Elder Andersen:

  • Was called to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in April 2009.
  • Served as a missionary in France and later as president of the France Bordeaux Mission.
  • Speaks English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.
  • Married Kathy Williams in 1975 in the Salt Lake Temple. They have four children.
