Looking out among 15,000 students in the BYU-Idaho Center here on Sunday, Sept. 22, Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles moved his finger across the screen of his iPad and read a question.

It was one of approximately 11,000 anonymous questions texted to him during the devotional. 

Addressing young adults in the congregation — as well as those listening on the radio or via live internet streaming — Elder Bednar had started his evening address by inviting the students to “exercise faith in Jesus Christ by acting” and submitting questions.

Then he insisted they not focus on his answers. 

He told them he hoped they wouldn’t remember his words or the words of his wife, Sister Susan Bednar — who would soon join him at the podium. Pay attention, the apostle emphasized, “to what you hear and feel by the power of the Holy Ghost.”

“Sister Bednar and I are incapable of answering the questions you will ask,” he said. “But we will exercise faith and try to do our best as you exercise faith and try to do your best.”
