Elder Russell Nelson of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will visit members of the Santa Maria LDS Stake at 908 Sierra Madre Ave. in Santa Maria from 9 to 10:30 a.m. this Sunday, April 20.

In addition to being an internationally renowned surgeon and medical researcher, Elder Nelson is listed in Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in Religion.

Being responsible for the membership worldwide, members of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles along with other General Authorities of the church routinely visit congregations throughout the world to help teach and train its over 15 million members worldwide and consist of 29,253 congregations.

“It has been over a decade since our last visit from a member of Quorum of Twelve Apostles” said Darren Hulstine, president of the Santa Maria Stake. “We consider this an honor and look forward to the spiritual guidance the General Authorities of the church always provide us. We invite anyone interested in attending to join us, we welcome you.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was formally organized in a small log cabin in upstate New York in 1830. According to the National Council of Churches, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of the fastest-growing churches in the United States.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
