An apostle of the Lord, Neil L. Andersen Speaks to South East Area Africa

Neil L. Andersen and other leaders spoke in a broadcast conference to several locations in SE Africa. This is the broadcast that occurred in the Nairobi, West Stake at the Upper Hill Stake Center.

A full house assembled at Upper Hill Meetinghouse of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The meeting began with the Ongata Rangai Ward Choir singing in Swahili “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”. This was followed by a talk by the West Stake President, George Munene.


The Special Broadcast protion then followed and included Elders Neil L. Andersen, member of the quorum of the twelve apostles, Tad R. Callister, Carl B. Cook, Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, Kevin S. Hamilton, President of Southeast Area of Africa, and the East Nairobi Stake President George, Munene.

Messages were for Africans “at this time and this place”. Speakers encouraged the congregation to “never give up on the Lord,” and reminded attendees “all that matters in life is the family.” Apostle Anderson concluded with an admonishment to “walk in ways to serve each other” and “God’s plan is unfolding in a very special way here in Africa.”
