President Russel M. Nelson Visits Kazakhstan

We had the privilege of meeting President Russell M. Nelson today.  He came to Kazakhstan to meet with government officials about the church and spoke to our branch.  

We explained to the kids beforehand that President Nelson is currently the president of the Quorum of the Tweleve Apostles and that he will most likely be the new prophet - although we don't like to ever think about losing President Monson, who has been prophet for most of our children's lives. Because of this Max wrote President Nelson a note that said, "You will be a good prophet.  Everyone who is Mormon will know you."  I thought that was so sweet.

Elder Nelson dedicated Kazakhstan and Kyrgyz Republic (former Kyrgyzstan) back in 2003 so it meant a lot to the members for him to come again.
