Church is Now Casting for New Testament Video Project

In an effort to attract participants from around the world for the LDS Motion Picture Studio’s New Testament film project, the Church has created a Web site, casting.lds.org, where interested members of the Church may apply to participate as actors or extras in all Church film and video productions, including the New Testament project. Filming will begin in spring 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, and will continue through the summer.

Youth Resource Guides Help Teachers

New resource guides supplement the Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women lesson manuals, Aaronic Priesthood Manual 3 and Young Women Manual 3, for 2011. The guides provide teachers with recent general conference references, discussion questions, additional scripture references, and activity ideas that tie into and refresh the existing lessons, making them more relevant to issues youth face today. The guides are available in 27 languages at Church distribution centers or online at resourceguides.lds.org.
