One could sense the determination and strength of these apostles on how they persist to the very end. I thought his talk was incredible but to see his "pit bull" determination to give it and his loving brother sustain him was as powerful as seeing him surrounded by angels and fire with the prison walls falling down.... what an amazing man and what amazing men/women we have leading this church. Not a more exceptional collection of men and women any where in the world! How about Sister Becks talk? Another incredible message in a timely manner. My daughters really were bolstered by Sister Beck. Every six months, these conferences are like "Spiritual Transfusions" speaking metaphysicaspiritually :)


I was so touched when Elder Nelson came over to help. What a perfect example of the love for another Elder Wirthlin spoke of in his talk.

I admire these appostles of ours so much what and act of love brother nelson showed, what determination showed by elder wirthlin. With such as these men the church will be ready for the Saviors return


So glad to hear that was all it was. He's such a great man, we respect him so much. We are so blessed to have such great men in our service.

He's a great guy, but why run so many stories about his knees? Were people that curious about it?


To answer the person's question "were people that curious about it?" YES! Many of us were concerned that he was having some kind of attack. What grit and determination to finish his talk and how loving of Elder Nelson to stand by him in support. They are both wonderful examples to us.


Thanks for the explanation - we were really concerned and wanted to know if he was ok

How blessed we are to have such chosen men at the helm!
I shed tears when I saw Elder Nelson come to assist
Elder Wirthlin. And am so glad to hear he is ok.

Thank you for your explanation, we in Australia were late getting Conference talks but no less concerned. Great Conference, great show of kindness from the concerned Brethren
