Saturday afternoon speakers

As the Single Adult Choir from the Ephraim, Logan, Ogden, Orem and Salt Lake Institutes concluded the Saturday afternoon session by singing "Where Can I Turn for Peace," the hymn's comforting words seemed to echo the spirit felt at the session. It was one of renewal as members were counseled to turn to the Lord, strengthen homes and to show respect and love through prayer.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, first counselor in the First Presidency, conducted the session, noting that the tropical flowers in the Tabernacle were a gift from the saints on the island of Kauai in Hawaii as "an expression of love and of gratitude to Heavenly Father in restoring" those things which were lost when the island was struck by a hurricane Sept. 11, 1992. President Thomas S. Monson, second counselor in the First Presidency, led the sustaining of General Authorities and general auxiliary presidencies.Elders Alexander B. Morrison and Rulon C. Craven of the Seventy offered the opening and closing prayers, respectively.
