Apostles go where our Savior wants them, on His time schedule, for His purposes...and the temple will also be completed as He sees fit. ...It's gratifying to know that the Church has grown in that region of the world, and that two current Apostles were able to visit, paying respects, while there, to an Apostle/President, who did the same, decades ago. May the Church continue to grow, worldwide, in both number and strength.


He doesn't speak Russian (ref to June 4 comment). He had a translator. (See, for example, the videos with KSL Channel 5 stories on this visit.)


If you mean the video where he was unveiling the plaque at the medical centre, that was in Ukraine where the language is Ukrainian - so if he does speak Russian it wouldn't have been much help ;-)


I was on a mission in Kiev when the Apostles came. They spoke to the missionaries and to the Members. Those were two of the most powerful meetings I've ever been to. They are truly inspired men, and those people were so grateful to hear from them.
