SALT LAKE CITY

Rosa Elena Bonilla de Lobo, the first lady of Honduras, met with President Thomas S. Monson and his first counselor in the First Presidency, President Henry B. Eyring, on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

"I understand that this is one of the rare privileges or one of the great privileges that we have had during this visit," she said, according to a press release from LDS Newsroom, of her opportunity to meet with President Monson.

She toured the Church's Humanitarian Center, Temple Square, the Conference Center and the Family History Library.

The Honduran first lady was interested in learning about the Church Humanitarian Center and Welfare Square. She said she wanted to learn about how these things help to satisfy the needs of people throughout the world. She commented that the Church had offered assistance to her country after recent flooding there. The Church delivered 90,000 tons of food to the people who were affected by the flooding and rains.

In regards to the Church's efforts and relationships throughout the world, she said, "This has reaffirmed in my mind the relationship that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has with the whole world. I now have faith that the Church does not have borders or limits in their ability [and] commitment to help those in need."
