Newly called apostle, Elder Gerrit W. Gong, and his wife, Sister Susan L. Gong, will speak during the keynote address of BYU Women's Conference scheduled for May 4. President Russell M. Nelson and his wife, Sister Wendy W. Nelson, were scheduled to speak, but due to a scheduling conflict have asked the new apostle and his wife to fulfill that assignment.
In addition to the Gongs, the the Relief Society general presidency — Sister Jean B. Bingham, Sister Sharon Eubank, and Sister Reyna I. Aburto, will be among the featured speakers BYU Women’s Conference on May 3–4. Registration is now open for this two-day gathering.
