General Conference

Leaders from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the faith’s October general conference will be held digitally and follow the same format as the April General Conference. 

The Mormon church has made history and injected diversity into a top leadership panel by selecting the first-ever Latin American apostle and the first-ever apostle of Asian ancestry.

The selections of Ulisses Soares of Brazil and Gerrit W. Gong, a Chinese-American, were announced Saturday morning at the start of a twice-annual conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
