Leaders and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been “anxiously engaged in a good cause” (Doctrine and Covenants 58:27) over the past six months.
The newest release of the Church’s World Report was published Wednesday, Sept. 27, on ChurchofJesusChrist.org and YouTube.
Released every six months by the Church, this edition covers the ministry of Church leaders and service and humanitarian activities members have engaged in over that time.
Coverage includes stories from some of the ministry of President Russell M. Nelson and his counselors in the First Presidency of the Church, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and general officers of the Church.
With tragedies occurring in Hawaii, Turkey, Syria and Africa in recent months, the Church and its members have engaged in multiple projects to help bring relief to those in need following disasters. Members also helped others around the world with their donations to Light the World Giving Machines last Christmas, and this edition of the World Report shows how some of those donations are helping.
Members of the Church rejoiced as temples opened their doors for public tours and were dedicated since April’s general conference. Among them, St. George’s open house began after years of renovation efforts concluded. And three temples were dedicated in one day — in Brasília, Brazil; Bentonville, Arkansas; and Moses Lake, Washington — for the first time in Church history.
The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square participated in their first stop on their multicity, multiyear tour when they visited Mexico this summer. Musicians and leaders share their experience in the new World Report.
