Staggering Growth

Other

Excerpt from an April 24, 2016 Young Single Adult address by Jeffrey R. Holland in Dallas, Texas: 1

“We’re in the midst of incredible growth, staggering growth in the church. It’s the single biggest problem we have. It’s the best problem we have, but it’s the biggest. We are reeling under the implications of the growth we have in this church. Last Thursday, I’ve been out here this Thursday, I’ve been with Elder and Sister Holland and I’ve been with Elder and Sister Robbins, this week, so I missed the temple meeting this Thursday, but a week ago Thursday we created 15 stakes, and we are doing that más o menos every week, more or less. It might not be 15, but its… the week before it was 12, sometimes it’s 8 or whatever and it’ll be a little uneven, but the point is we are talking double digit stakes every week. Every week of our lives.”
