On April 6, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced that Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles would be taking “two months off to focus on his health.”
According to the statement, Elder Holland, who did not attend any sessions of the Church’s April 2023 general conference after being diagnosed with COVID-19, is also dealing with a kidney condition and undergoing dialysis.
In the video, Elder Holland offers an update on his health and thanks Latter-day Saints for their prayers. “I’m staggering toward the finish line,” Elder Holland says. “I refuse to get off the track. I’m still in the race. And I’m grateful to the Saints for that, for those prayers.”
