As part of a recent ministering visit in Honduras, Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught Latter-day Saints about how the Savior values each son and daughter of God.

“How much are you worth?” the Apostle said. “You are worth what Jesus Christ was willing to pay.”

The Christ-centered message was one of many Elder Renlund delivered to leaders, missionaries and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while ministering in five Central American countries — Honduras, Belize, Panama, Nicaragua and Guatemala — Feb. 17-26.

One of Elder Renlund’s main invitations to Latter-day Saints in the Central America Area was to “invite others to participate in the work of the Lord using specific, inspired invitations.”


Elder Renlund first traveled to Honduras, where he taught Church leaders, members and missionaries.

Leaders from 15 stakes and one district in two San Pedro Sula coordinating councils gathered to hear Elder Renlund’s message.

“Nobody in this Church needs to do everything, but everyone who is willing can do something,” he said. “The Lord will take all who are willing and make them able to do His work.”

Elder Renlund, and his wife, Sister Ruth Renlund, were accompanied by Elder Patricio M. Giuffra, a General Authority Seventy and member of the Central America Area presidency, and his wife, Sister María Eugenia Giuffra, as well as Elder Favio M. Durán, an Area Seventy, and his wife, Sister Nusly Durán.
