“We hustled around, got a group of 70 to 100 people to see President Hinckley,” Bell said. “It lasted about 10 to 15 minutes. He said a few words, shook some hands, gave some hugs, it was pretty neat. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event for many of these people to see the prophet.”
With the added blessings of a local patriarch, leaders holding priesthood keys and a stronger spiritual foundation, President Clark is excited to maintain the momentum of Guam’s new stake.
“The creation of the Guam stake was made possible by the faith and effort of many church members over several decades,” he said when called. “It is long-awaited and I thank the Lord. I will trust in his guidance in serving the members of our new stake.”
