Elder Holland Announces his Return to Apostolic Assignments

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced his return to his apostolic duties today on his social media platforms. He shared:

After having been away from church assignments for several weeks due to some serious health challenges, I am pleased to begin slowly returning to work, he said. Pat and I have been touched by the cards, notes, thoughts, and especially by the prayers you have offered in our behalf. Your sweet gestures during this demanding time have reminded us that God watches over us, that we can always trust in him, and that he very often answers our prayers through other people.

On days when we feel we have been pushed to our limit, we are reminded that we won’t be pushed beyond our faith. The old adage is, ‘man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.’ We won’t discover just how much strength we do have until it is tested, refined and tested again.

Often — perhaps usually — it is the difficult, demanding times of our lives that are the growth periods — the defining periods. They are the ones that take us from who we are now to who we are meant to be.

Elder Holland has been excused from his assignments for the past two months as he has had to prioritize his health. Due to these circumstances he was not able to speak at the church’s annual general conference April 1-2 along with other speaking assignments.

He will now return to his ministry and participate in meetings and travel with members world wide.
