In chapels, in homes and as individuals, “we can find peace,” said Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, speaking to Latter-day Saints in the Middle East during a recent visit.

The address to Church members in Jerusalem was one of many during a 17-day assignment to six countries Nov. 6 through Nov. 22.

During the trip, Elder Holland presided at a district conference and two stake conferences; met with other members, missionaries and government leaders; and gave counsel regarding the tensions that exist in the region.

Elder Holland was accompanied on the trip by his wife, Sister Patricia Holland; Elder Larry R. Lawrence of the Seventy and his wife, Sister Laurel S. Lawrence; and Brother R. David McMillan of the Church’s Middle East Desk and his wife, Sister Brenda McMillan.

In addition to Jerusalem, the leaders visited Istanbul, Turkey; Amman, Jordan; Beirut, Lebanon; Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; and Manama, Bahrain.
