Latter-day Saints and friends of the faith gathered in Salt Lake City Friday evening to celebrate the 95th birthday of President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The prophet was honored for his life of Christlike service.

“If I have learned anything certain in my 95 years of life, it is that Jesus the Christ is the Son of God. My message to the world is simple and sincere. I invite all of God’s children on both sides of the veil to come unto their Savior, receive the blessings of the temple, have enduring joy, and qualify for eternal life.”
