For members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there is no more exciting time than General Conference.
It’s a big deal.
We finally have a trailer that matches the hype.
Max Bassett edited a General Conference trailer that will have you so excited for the Bicentennial General Conference that you might just start a countdown.
When asked why he decided to make the trailer, Max said:
President Nelson made the announcement in an epic way at the end of the October conference and so I wanted to get people excited in an epic way. My hope is that the trailer can spark an interest in all kinds of people, both inside and outside the church, and get them to want to know more about the Restoration and the upcoming conference.
I think I can speak for many when I say that Max’s trailer did just that!
The trailer, of course, is not endorsed or created by the Church, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t EPIC!
At the time of writing this article, the video has over 360,000 views on YouTube, and millions more on various Facebook pages.
President Russell M. Nelson extended an invitation on January 1, 2020 to prepare for this April’s Bicenntenial General Conference. He said:
When I spoke during last October’s general conference, I designated 2020 as a bicentennial period commemorating 200 years since God the Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to Joseph Smith in a vision. That singular event in human history initiated the Restoration of the Lord’s gospel—an unfolding Restoration that continues today.
God loves all of His children and has a vision for each of us. Just as He listened to Joseph’s prayer in 1820, He listens to you and yearns to speak with you through the Spirit. We invite you to be a major part of sharing the message of the ongoing restoration of the Savior’s gospel. We will share more about this soon, but you can start today by acting on the invitations I extended to you at last general conference to immerse yourself in the glorious light of the Restoration.
You may wish to begin your preparation by reading afresh Joseph Smith’s account of the First Vision as recorded in the Pearl of Great Price. Or ponder important questions such as, “How would my life be different if my knowledge gained from the Book of Mormon were suddenly taken away?” or “How have the events that followed the First Vision made a difference for me and my loved ones?”
Select your own questions. Design your own plan. Act on any of these invitations to prepare yourself for sharing the important messages of the ongoing Restoration. It is your personal preparation that will help April’s general conference become for you not only memorable but also unforgettable. The time to act is now. This is a hinge point in the history of the Church, and your part is vital.
How will you prepare for April 2020’s General Conference?
