Satellite Broadcast for Children

The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles invite children of the Church to attend a special satellite broadcast on 8 February 2003 at 2:00 P.M. mountain standard time. A member of the First Presidency and members of the Primary general presidency will address the children.

“We hope children will remember this all their lives,” says Sister Sydney S. Reynolds, first counselor in the Primary general presidency, noting that broadcasts especially for children are rare.

The theme of the broadcast is “I’ll Follow Him in Faith.” “We want to help parents strengthen their children’s faith in the Savior, because He is ultimately the source of comfort, peace, and direction,” Sister Reynolds says.

Primary children ages 7–11, their parents, and Primary leaders are invited to attend the broadcast. The occasion takes place during the 125th anniversary year of the Primary organization and is the first broadcast for children to take place in the Conference Center. It will be broadcast in many languages, with rebroadcasts scheduled to accommodate time zones throughout the world.
