9:30-10 a.m. History of the Saints: Witnesses of the Prophet Joseph Smith

It is a law of God that truth is established by the testimony of witnesses. The Lord’s resurrection and living reality is attested by witnesses, as is every priesthood ordinance of salvation. So it is with the Prophet Joseph who stands at the head of this dispensation as prophet for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are many who left written testimonies of his character, personality, and prophetic calling. This History of the Saints special presentation shares the accounts of some of those witnesses.

10 a.m.-12 noon Saturday Morning Session of General Conference

12-12:30 p.m. Onward Ever Onward: A New Era in Missionary Work 

It’s an unprecedented day for missionary work in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The quick on-set of the pandemic generated the challenge of navigating thousands of people back to their homelands. Never before has the church had to negotiate the mass transit of so many missionaries so quickly. Decisions then had to be made on how to get missionaries back into the field.  Along the way a new era in missionary work has been born. Social media is now playing a key role in the miracle of conversion and missionaries are busier than ever. Incredible stories are emerging throughout the world as people are finding the need to turn to God in these troubling times. In this documentary we talk to those who have been directly affected by the changes. Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles shares insight about what is happening and how it is impacting the missionary efforts worldwide.

12:30-1:30 p.m. For I Had Seen A Vision: 200 Years Later

The Spring of 2020 marks the 200th anniversary since Joseph Smith first prayed to God to know which church to join and received the First Vision. Carole Mikita takes a look at what this momentous revelation means in today’s world. Historians, church leaders and various artists reflect on how this event has shaped the course of history and what impact it has had in the world.

1:30-2 p.m. United In Prayer

Amid the global coronavirus pandemic people of many faiths have been called upon to come together in prayer and fasting. Millions have responded. And now with the help of the internet faithful believers from throughout the world share common ground in uniting in prayer. People are finding ways to connect with one another in new and unique ways despite the difficulties happening around them. Many say the power of these online connections and prayers is palatable and brings both hope and comfort. We follow the stories of some of these people as they share their experiences about the calming influence of these connections.

2-4 p.m. Saturday Morning Session of General Conference

4-4:30 p.m. 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.

4:30-5 p.m. Heroes In Disguise

Mascots are the life of the party at any event they attend. But once the games are over and the crowds dispense many of these mascots continue their most important work anonymously in the community. 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 lovable creatures share joy and happiness. At each of these gathering families are impacted, and kids’ are given hope. For some of these mascots it is their faith that drives their efforts, for others, it is a desire to give back to a community that has helped them. Hear the heartwarming stories of how lives have been changed.

6-8 p.m. Women’s Session of General Conference

9-9:30 a.m. 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.
