Youth Can Submit Gospel Questions on WhatsApp to Be Answered By An Apostle

On 5 August 2017, Elder Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and his wife, will hold a live youth broadcast event called “Face to Face” for all youth on the African continent. This event is called “Face to Face” because it’s an opportunity for youth to ask questions as if they were personally talking with Elder Renlund. The Face to Face event will include hosts sharing questions submitted by youth throughout Africa for Elder Renlund and his wife to answer in a live broadcast

Face to Face events are held around the world. Youth from South Africa participated in a Face to Face event in March with President Eyring and Elder Holland.

How Can I Submit A Gospel Question?
