To speak to Peter about faith and how he was able to walk on water. To see Paul speak to the Greeks on Mars Hill about their "unknown God." To learn from John the Beloved about the future of mankind. It would be a singular privilege and life-changing experience for sure.
Peter, Paul, John the Beloved, and the other ancient Apostles were called as special witnesses of Christ by the Savior himself or through one He had ordained (e.g. Paul). Today, there are modern-day Apostles of Jesus Christ. Some of their names echo their ancient predecessors (Thomas and David) while others resonate with the times in which they live (Henry, Russell, Jeffrey, Todd, Boyd, Dallin, and Dieter).
Here is a personal account by one of today's Apostles of Jesus Christ, Elder Quentin L. Cook, sharing his call to the Holy Apostleship.
We have an opportunity this weekend (March 31st and April 1st at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. MST) to hear from Apostles of Jesus Christ. At this "General Conference", our modern-day Peters, Pauls, and John the Beloveds will share the words of Christ. What will they say? What is the counsel from God for our day here in 2012?
Listen and find out for yourself.
