Video: Favorite moments from Church President Nelson’s 5-year ministry Part 2

In the second video of a series titled ‘Five Years of Leadership,’ President Nelson speaks to the NAACP, reflects on Washington, D.C. and discusses the Church’s COVID-19 response

President Russell M. Nelson was set apart as the 17th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Jan. 14, 2018. Since then, he has traveled to 35 nations, changed Church organization, utilized technology, led the Church through a pandemic, issued historic invitations and built bridges of understanding.

He has addressed hundreds of thousands of Latter-day Saints — often in their own language — and called upon kings, presidents and prime ministers. He has also comforted victims of crime and others who grieve, called children to him and linked arms with top leaders of the NAACP.

This second video in a Church News video series titled “Five Years of Leadership” features President Nelson as he speaks with the NAACP and Rev. Amos Brown, reflects on Washington, D.C., and the two temple dedications he participated in there, and he is joined by Sister Wendy Nelson to discuss prayer and the Christlike love demonstrated by the Church’s COVID-19 response.
