This Church News video, titled “Celebrating 90 years,” features President Oaks sharing some of the lessons he has learned over nine decades.
President Oaks speaks about his youth, education, legal career and calling as an Apostle of Jesus Christ.
“I have seen up close how the Lord guides His Prophet President Russell M. Nelson, whom I’ve been privileged to sit beside for all my years as an Apostle,” he says. “And I’ve felt the witness of the Spirit to what he announces as Prophet and President of the Church. And I know that God, our Heavenly Father, created a plan for His children.”
