Saturday, October 5

9:30-10:00   History of the Saints 

The Joseph Smith Papers are a wealth and treasure of understanding. It is one of the most significant historical works of our generation. Many volumes have been released and more are coming in the years ahead. All of this work serves to affirm the faith of the Saints. Just released is the newest volume in the Documents Series—Documents Volume 9.

It is different than previous volumes because of the short span of time it covers and is a wealth of information. If you have had questions about the origins of the Relief Society, or Joseph Smith as a Mason, or of the Prophet’s many and varied roles of leadership in Nauvoo—then this program will be of great help to you.

12:00-1:00    Amish Latter-day Saints: Blending Two Worlds into One

By Angie Denison
A moving story about love, loss and sacrifice. When three devout Amish families decided to change religions and become members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints their close-knit Amish community chose to shun them. That isolated them from family and friends and altered nearly every aspect of their lives.

The three families struggled to adjust to their new reality without the support of all that was familiar to them. Despite losing family, friends and businesses, they found peace as they worked to redefine themselves. It was their new-found faith and friends that gave them courage to endure the painful shunning and face the unknown.

They learned the value of forgiveness and resiliency as they sought for ways to blend their Amish heritage with their new religion. This documentary takes an in-depth look at their faith journey.

9:00-9:30 a.m.      Go Forth

By Michelle King
We often hear about the thousands of young people serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but they’re not the only ones. There is a critical need for seniors as well—both singles and couples—serving at home and away.

You’ll hear the compelling personal stories of senior missionaries who took the leap of faith, serving in diverse missions all over the world.

They’ll be honest about the joys and challenges of serving at an older age, and we’ll clear up common myths and misconceptions about senior service. See how the Church’s new interactive senior missionary website helps you discover the best mission opportunities for you.

12:00-1:00 p.m.    Anchored in Faith: Stories from the South Pacific

By Angie Denison
When members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the South Pacific Islands heard their prophet was coming to visit, excitement filled the air. It had been years since they’d seen a prophet in person. However, Saints in these areas have been faithful for generations.

Their conviction to their beliefs has sustained them through both the trials and triumphs of life. We share the stories of some of these people and the impact the visit from President Russell M. Nelson had on them.

1:00-1:30 p.m.      Saints Church History

By Angie Denison
Discover stories from Church archives that are seldom heard. The new Saints Church history volumes share a unique perspective on the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The story-telling style allows for the discovery of how the early church was formed and what the Saints experienced in those early years.

This documentary takes you behind the scenes of the creation of these new books. Meet the historians and scholars associated with these works and hear why these history books are written in a more narrative form.

1:30-2:00 p.m.      The Book of Mormon Video Library—Behind the Scenes

By Michelle King
Stories from the Book of Mormon come to life…in Goshen, Utah! These videos have taken years of planning…and will take many more years to complete.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is releasing the first installment of what will be many videos portraying stories from the Book of Mormon.

The episodes begin with First Nephi, Chapters 1 through 18. That’s where we find Lehi’s family leaving Jerusalem, about 600 B.C. We go behind the scenes to see the making of these new videos.
