General Conference: Robert D. Hales

This was one of those best General Conferences weekends ever. Even with the passing of beloved Elder Robert D. Hales between today’s sessions, it was a weekend filled with great rejoicing. Truly he is no longer suffering the limitations of his earthly body and he will, no doubt, be moving freely on the other side of the veil. 

Elder Neil L. Andersen was the concluding speaker. As soon as his remarks are posted I will post a link to them. They were beyond touching. His was an incredibly powerful sermon as he refreshed our memories through the words of the living prophet and the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ.  

What a marvelous day. Truly a day of joy and gladness. Today was a day of hope, of peace, and prayerful thanksgiving as so many witnesses shared testimony of a loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, His Beloved Son.

Alleluia. Halaluyah. Hallelujah.
