During the past few months, a global pandemic, wildfires, and other natural disasters have turned our world upside down. With social distancing, face masks, and video meetings, we have had to learn to do some things differently. Yet the work of the Lord is steadily moving forward!

  • Missionaries are doing their work in new, creative ways. Many are doing more teaching than ever.

  • Temples had to be closed for a time. But by the end of 2020, we will have broken ground for 20 new temples!

  • People are doing much more family history work.

  • Many new wards and stakes have been created.

  • More people are studying the gospel at home.

  • The Church has given pandemic aid for 895 projects in 150 countries.

Through it all, our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, love us! They care for us! They and Their holy angels are watching over us. I know that this is true.

“I pray that you may feel the Lord’s perfect love for you.”

President Russell M. Nelson

Temples Bless People All around the World

“The Lord’s ordinances and covenants prepare us for eternal life.”

President Russell M. Nelson, “A New Normal,” Ensign, Nov. 2020.
