President Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency shows a copy of the missionary manual "Preach My Gospel" at a multi-stake conference Sunday.

PROVO — President Dieter F. Uchtdorf presided over a multi-stake conference Sunday which filled the Marriott Center on the campus of Brigham Young University and was transmitted via satellite to 135 stakes throughout Utah and Wasatch counties.

Of the 135 stakes taking part in the conference, 22 were BYU stakes and three were Orem college stakes. Elder Marlin K. Jensen of the First Quorum of the Seventy conducted the conference and reminded the group that 135 stakes was the same amount of stakes that comprised the whole church in the 1940s.

President Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve both spoke and encouraged members to increase their personal faith and that of their families.
