It was wonderful to spend time with those who attended Family Discovery Day today.
I challenged those who were in attendance to take a photo of the challenge extended to them and then post it on social media. I also invited them to use the hashtag ‪#‎TempleChallenge‬ when they shared it.
I challenge you to prepare as many names for the temple as baptisms you perform in the temple and help someone else do the same.

Kathy and I just returned home from several days in Peru. It is amazing that the country of Peru now has 100 stakes. Whenever we were with the members, we felt the spirit of faith and devotion to the gospel. What a blessing it is to see the faith and goodness of members across the world and be able to share my sure witness of the Savior Jesus Christ and His restored gospel.

While visiting Paris, France, in 2004, President Gordon B. Hinckley prophesied: "Sometime in the future, a beautiful house of the Lord will grace this land.” Elder Andersen saw that prophecy coming to life during a recent trip to France. http://bit.ly/1uK9Dzp

I’ve spent a lot of time recently thinking about what makes young people today different from young people of past generations. I firmly believe that this generation of righteous youth will do things that no other generation before them has done.
I’ll be sharing some of my thoughts about this on Saturday, February 14, during Family Discovery Day at the RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City. I invite you to watch the streaming broadcast and learn more about the day’s events. http://bit.ly/1FbKJzj

One admonition that has been a strength to me is the powerful declaration of the Prophet Joshua, 'Choose you this day whom ye will serve; ... but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.'

It is a crowning privilege of a husband and wife who are able to bear children to provide mortal bodies for these spirit children of God.

How has overcoming trials early in life strengthened you to endure hardships later on?

Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
Introduction

Elder Neil Linden Andersen was named an Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on April 4, 2009.

Elder Andersen was serving as the senior member of the Presidency of the Seventy prior to his calling to the Quorum of the Twelve. He was named a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy in April 1993, at age 41. He previously led the work of the Church in southern Brazil and, again as a member of an Area Presidency, oversaw the Church in western Europe. He has also assisted in supervising the work of the Church in Mexico and Central America. In addition, he supervised Church audiovisual production, including the filming of The Testaments: Of One Fold and One Shepherd, and managed construction of the broadcast facilities in the Conference Center as the Executive Director of the Church Audiovisual Department. He speaks French, Portuguese, and Spanish in addition to his native English.

Prior to his call as a General Authority, Elder Andersen served as a mission president in the France Bordeaux Mission and as president of the Tampa Florida Stake.

Elder Andersen was born in Logan, Utah, on August 9, 1951, and was raised in Pocatello, Idaho.

He graduated from Brigham Young University, where he was a Hinckley Scholar, and earned a master's of business administration from Harvard University. After completing his education, he settled in Tampa, Florida, where his business interests included advertising, real estate development, and health care.

Elder Andersen and his wife, Kathy Williams Andersen, are the parents of four children.
