12:00-12:30 One By One

Can one person make a difference when thousands are left homeless? That was a question Ron Batt asked himself after Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico in the early hours of September 20th, 2017. Shortly after the storm, Ron spent a week there volunteering to pass out supplies to those in need. That week impacted him so deeply that he gave up his life in Utah and, over 2 years later, is still in Puerto Rico volunteering to rebuild homes one by one. Recovery from this type of devastation can take years,

thousands of houses are still waiting for repair. We travel to the Island to see the volunteer efforts of Ron and other non-profit organizations. Join us inside the homes of several families who have been helped. Hear how they have found hope and healing through the kind acts of others.

Underneath the fur, feathers and fancy costumes are men and women with hearts of gold. Dan Rascon follows some of these Heroes in Disguise as they serve at various community gatherings. Without uttering a single word these loveable creatures share joy and happiness. At each of these gathering families are impacted, and kids’ are given hope.

4:30-5:00 Service and Sacrifice: The Brent Taylor Story

When Major Brent Taylor, a member of the Utah National Guard and mayor of North Ogden, was killed in Afghanistan on Saturday, November 3, 2018, it put a spotlight on a life lived with purpose and sparked an overwhelming community response. It was a testament to the priorities of his life. He chose to live with an absolute commitment to God, family and country; it was a life of service and sacrifice. His values led him into the military, to seek public office and defined his life as a servant of God. Taylor firmly believed that every life has a purpose. If you find out what God wants you to do, your life will become bigger than your own, and God will use you to work miracles. Through interviews with his family, coworkers, fellow soldiers and community leaders, we will explore how those priorities and commitments helped one man make such a large difference in the world around him.

8:00-9:00 Amish Latter-day Saints: Blending Two Worlds into One

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. Watch on KSL 5 TV or on the KSL TV app.

9:00-9:30 History of The Saints—Pioneer Children’s Memorial

Thousands of pioneer children walked, rode and camped their way through more than 1,300-miles of trail from Council Bluffs, Iowa to the Land of Zion in Utah. It was an adventure for most, and they made it to Utah no worse for the wear. Tragically, however, 684 Children died on the trail.

1:00-1:30 President Russell M. Nelson: There is Much More to Come

Since members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sustained President Russell R. Nelson as the church’s 17th president two years ago, he has logged well over 115,000 miles — traveling to six continents, 32 nations and territories and 49 cities. He has met with members in large and small settings — often addressing them in their own language — and with world leaders. He has also reached out to victims of crime, comforted those grieving and acknowledged dozens of children. The goal of the 95-year-old world religious leader is “to build bridges of cooperation rather than walls of segregation.” It is the kind of outreach that touches entire congregations and individuals at the same time. It is a ministry that inspires the masses to look forward. “There is much more to come,” said President Nelson of the work, the 16 million Latter-day Saints and the global church he leads.
