Elder Jeffrey R. Holland Addresses All-Party Parliamentary Group in UK House of Lords

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

With religious conflicts growing throughout the world, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, an apostle in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, addressed the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Foreign Affairs in the House of Lords at the UK Parliament Wednesday, June 10, 2015, on how humanitarian aid can help.

He followed Dr. Rowsch Shaways, deputy prime minister of Iraq, who also addressed the gathering, along with Dr. Ali Nasser Muthanna from AMAR International and Sharon Eubank, the Church’s director of Humanitarian Services.

“We all long for the day when swords will be beaten into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks, but unfortunately religiously related violence is increasing, not decreasing, as we move into the 21st century,” Elder Holland told those gathered, including several members of Parliament. “These conflicts have led to humanitarian crises of staggering proportions around the world. The need to help remains enormous.”
