The Diverse Speakers and Messages of Love and the Plan of Salvation During General Conference

In this special session of General Conference that took place Easter morning, President Russell M. Nelson asked that the speakers that be chosen be diverse and from people of many different countries. He emphasized that this Church is a global church, and that the speakers this session was an example of that. All the talks strongly emphasized Easter, The Resurrection, and the Plan of Salvation.


Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles started by talking about the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the importance of repentance. He was then followed by Reyna I. Aburto, Second Counselor of the Relief Society General Presidency, who talked about the sorrow that comes when we lose the ones that we love, including our families. 


"Because of Jesus Christ's resurrection, we will all be resurrected. He has made it possible for all of us to be reunited as families, and have eternal joy, in the presence of God, if we choose to make sacred covenants with Him."


The next talk was given by S. Mark Palmer of the Seventy who followed up on the theme of Plan of Salvation and losing ones that we love. What he really emphasized was how the Plan of Salvation answers so many unanswered questions that the soul yearns for during times of hardships.


Edward Dube of the Seventy from Zimbabwe talked about the suffering of Paul and how even though he has such a difficult life, he still served the Lord. Through the suffering of ones life, if we continue to point our focus towards Christ and the Plan of Salvation, we will have peace and comfort from our Heavenly Father. 


Taniela B. Wakolo of the Seventy reemphasized the message of God's universal and perfect love, and how to truly know if you as a member of the Church is doing their part. How do you know? It's simple:


"If you love Me, keep My commandments."


Chi Hong Wong of the Seventy talked about the Plan of Salvation as well and its attack from the Adversary. He advised all members to have a firm foundation and to build up their testimony's. He used the children's son "The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rocks" as a great example to showcase why it's important to build a foundation on Jesus Christ.  


Other speakers like  Michael Teh of the Seventy and Jose A Teixeria of the Presidency of Seventy also emphasized the Plan of Salvation, and the Resurrection.
