As he celebrated Thanksgiving, Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles reflected on recent miracles, including the recent recovery from health challenges of President Jeffrey R. Holland, Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

Elder Renlund had a “unique vantage point” to President Holland’s hospitalization this fall, as he accompanied the late President M. Russell Ballard, then Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve, as he checked daily on then-Elder Holland. Each time they visited, President Ballard and Elder Renlund gave their sick colleague a blessing.

“By way of background, I have spent years visiting patients in hospitals,” wrote Elder Renlund on social media. “Many were critically ill, and I saw many die. The second time I accompanied President Ballard, President Holland was in critical condition. Adrenaline-like drugs were being used to support his circulation. He was virtually non-responsive. The physicians didn’t know exactly what was wrong and had informed his children that the prognosis was extremely poor. I felt a sense of foreboding.”
