This week on social: Elder and Sister Uchtdorf visit significant sites from the Savior’s life

Elder Rasband ministered in France and Armenia, and Sister Craig teaches of ‘the peace that [Christ] wants to give’

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shared on Facebook April 19 a picture of him at the Sea of Galilee. “How grateful I am for the revealed truths of the Savior’s gospel that invite us to be baptized and renew our covenants with God each week as we partake of the sacrament,” he said.

The following day, Elder Uchtdorf told more of his time with his wife visiting significant sites that represent the Savior’s ministry. “God promises us that we may always have His Spirit to be with us,” he wrote. “As we ask, seek, and knock, doors will be opened that will lead to His peace and joy.”

He was one of several Church leaders to share social posts this past week.
