Video Chat: Seeing Beyond Ourselves

May 2, 2018

To accept and love others does not mean we must embrace their ideas . . . Looking beyond what we can see requires conscious focus on the Savior. - Elder W. Craig Zwick

Intro Video

To be played before the video conference begins


We are blessed to have a worldwide church and technology to connect people across the globe.  Youth from our temple district will meet together in tri-stake groups to experience an online video discussion with the youth and families in another part of the world (including Australia/New Zealand, Korea, and Central America) who live far away from a temple. In these discussions we will connect and discuss the challenges of living far from the temple and share their hope and faith to make it there someday.  


Two youth and a leader from each tri-stake group will be selected and prepared to organize and lead the discussions.  The youth will also learn a special version of the hymn I Believe in Christ for the performance.  You can find the location where your stake will meet by clicking the button below.
