Two members of the Second Quorum of the Seventy were released October 6, after five and one-half years of service, and four members of the Seventy were sustained as members of the general presidencies of the Young Men and Sunday School.

The changes came during the Saturday afternoon session of the Church’s 160th semiannual general conference.

The changes in the auxiliary presidencies came as a result of new assignments for several members of the Seventy.

Elder Jack H. Goaslind was called as President of the Young Men, with Elder LeGrand R. Curtis as First Counselor and Elder Robert K. Dellenbach as Second Counselor.

Elder H. Verlan Andersen was called as Second Counselor in the Sunday School general presidency.

Elder Vaughn J. Featherstone, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, and Elder Monte J. Brough were released as the Young Men presidency, and Elder Ted E. Brewerton was released from the Sunday School presidency. Each now has an Area Presidency assignment requiring him to live outside the United States. (See following story on new Area Presidency assignments.)

Elder Call was sustained to the Seventy on 6 April 1985. A native of Colonia Juarez, Mexico, he had previously served as a mission president in South America, a regional representative, and a stake president. While he served in the Seventy, his assignments included a calling as a Counselor in, then President of, the South America South Area Presidency.

Elder Camargo, the first Brazilian called as a General Authority, was sustained to the Seventy on 6 April 1985. He had previously served as a regional representative and stake president. While he served in the Seventy, his assignments included a calling as First Counselor in the Brazil Area Presidency.
