“Now is not only a time for us to look back, it is the time to look forward with excitement to the future,” said President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during a visit to the Republic of Singapore. “What a glorious future is in store for you.”

The prophet of the global Church spoke at a devotional Wednesday evening originating from the Bukit Timah Singapore stake center during a visit the island nation, the third stop on his Southeast Asia ministry. The meeting was translated and transmitted live to all congregations in Singapore and Malaysia.

He is traveling with his wife, Wendy, and Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Katherine.

“This country has come a long way since it became an independent republic in 1965,” remarked President Nelson. “Only four years later, on April 14, 1969, an apostle of the Lord, Elder Ezra Taft Benson, dedicated Singapore for the preaching of the gospel. Now we are celebrating 50 years since that sacred event.”
