Elder Maynes to address young adults in Worldwide Devotional

How can young single adults develop or strengthen their testimony of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly the First Vision and the unique role of the Prophet Joseph Smith? Why is this testimony important for young adults today?

Elder Richard J. Maynes of the Presidency of the Seventy will answer these questions at a worldwide devotional for young adults on Sunday, May 1.

All young single adults (ages 18–30) and students finishing high school or the equivalent are invited to attend the devotional, which will be broadcast to stake centers and streamed live online around the world. Married young adults are also welcome to attend.

The worldwide devotional, which originates from the Salt Lake Tabernacle, will be transmitted live on the Church satellite system, devotionals.lds.org and other media on May 1, at 6 p.m. MDT.

Shortly following the live broadcast, a recording of the devotional will be archived online with past devotionals at devotionals.lds.org. That recording may be streamed or downloaded at any time. Recordings in all approved languages will be available by Friday, May 6.

The broadcast is the second of three worldwide devotionals for young single adults planned for 2016. President Russell M. Nelson, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, spoke Jan. 10 (see “Becoming True Millennials”). Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will speak on Sept. 11.
