President Veazey's Challenge
President Steve Veazey will bring a challenge to the church in a webcast at 6:00 p.m. CDT on Sunday 2 April 2017. His inspiring message will be followed by a live question-and-answer session.

The recorded challenge is available online in English, French, and Spanish with captions/subtitles. We hope this gives viewers a chance to gather, see the challenge, and send questions before the live webcast 2 April. Small groups or congregations are invited to use prepared materials for their gatherings.
