Special Interests Hold a First in Sweden

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN The inspiring area general conference recently held in Stockholm, Sweden, for the Saints of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland was preceded by another first—a Swedish Special Interest conference, attended by Melchizedek Priesthood MIA adults from throughout Sweden.

Highlights of the two-day conference included an address given by Elder James E. Faust, Assistant to the Council of the Twelve and Managing Director of the Melchizedek Priesthood MIA, a boat tour, and sightseeing trips.

Planned to dovetail into the area general conference schedule, the conference provided an opportunity for approximately 80 Special Interest Saints to become better acquainted and to gain in strength from association with their Latter-day Saint peers.

Rain failed to deter the Saints, gathered together for the first Special Interest conference in Sweden, as they participated in the various activities.
