Previous Friend to Friend episodes

The November Friend to Friend will be the third Friend to Friend event this year. The July 30 episode focused on temples, while the Feb. 19 episode taught about baptism, the Holy Ghost and the sacrament.

In the July 30 Friend to Friend, Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles joined the broadcast from the Tokyo Japan Temple. He took five Japanese children on a personal tour of the temple during the open house prior to its July 3 rededication and interviewed them about their experience.

“Heavenly Father loves each one of His children; He especially loves Primary children,” the Apostle testified. “He loves every child of God. I know Heavenly Father lives. I know the temple is literally the house of the Lord. I know Jesus Christ lives. I testify that He is the Son of God.”

Most of the 20-minute broadcast was filmed at the Church History Museum’s “Temples Dot the Earth” exhibit, designed to help children ages 1-11 discover the history and purpose of temple building.

Outgoing Primary General President Camille N. Johnson participated in the English version of the Friend to Friend, with Sister Susan H. Porter, first counselor in the Primary general presidency, in the Portuguese version and Sister Amy A. Wright, second counselor, in the Spanish version. President Porter became the Primary general president on Aug. 1.

The Feb. 19 Friend to Friend followed a young explorer who traveled a trail representing the covenant path. Along the way, the Primary general presidency helped the explored and children hosts learn about baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost and the importance of the sacrament.
