    • Spoken at anti-pornography and family history conferences.

    • Spoken at universities about becoming “true millennials” and in defense of faith and moral values.

    • Met with Church members and leaders, government officials, and religious leaders in Argentina, Botswana, Chile, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Mozambique, Peru, the Philippines, Uruguay, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
