Face to Face in Palmyra

Face to Face in Palmyra

A monumental event took place in Palmyra today.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held a Face to Face Discussion here.  President Henry B. Eyring, 1st Counselor in the church, and Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Apostle, answered questions for youth around the world.  I had the amazing honor of photographing the event.

Here is a KSL TV recap of the event…

And, here is the Mormon Newsroom recap, narrated by Buddy Blankenfeld.

If you watch carefully, you might even see a photographer from Palmyra.

No Coughing

In a crowd this size and a room this crowded in the middle of winter, you’d think people would be coughing.  There wasn’t any.  The reverence in the room was amazing.  Consequently, one of the sound engineers even commented.

The room got quite hot with all those people and equipment.  They couldn’t open a door or window because of the noise from the wind.  In spite of all that, it went off very well.

Inspiration

There’s a scripture that says when a servant of the Lord speaks by the Holy Ghost it is as if God himself were saying it.  Such was the case today.  We heard the voice of God through these two men.
