Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to host conference

The Akron, Ohio Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host its semi-annual conference April 19 at 7 p.m. and 20 at 10 a.m. at the Latter-day Saint chapel located at 106 E. Howe Road in Tallmadge.

Visiting church authority Elder Michael John U. Teh of the Church's First Quorum of the Seventy will be a special guest at the conference sessions. All members and the general public ages 12 years and older are invited to the Saturday evening session, while the Sunday session is open for all ages.

"We are thrilled to have Elder Teh at the conference sessions in Northeast Ohio. We are looking forward to his message and to commemorating this season of Easter as we celebrate the life and the resurrection of the Savior Jesus Christ," said Douglas Talley, president of the Akron Ohio Stake. "We extend an invitation to all to join with us for these meetings," added Talley.

Teh was called to serve as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints March 31, 2007, at age 41. The LDS Church organizes its congregations geographically into "wards" and several wards then combine to make a "stake." Because there are more than 15 million members of the Church worldwide, "Area" assignments are given to selected church leaders who oversee church activity in those areas. Teh is currently serving as president of the Philippines Area of the Church. He was born in Davao City, Davao Del Sur, Philippines in June 1965. He married Grace May Weedon in December 1989. They are the parents of three children and reside in Manila, Philippines.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a membership of nearly 12,500 members in Northeast Ohio. The Akron Ohio Stake consists of 10 wards with membership from New Philadelphia, Canton, Ashland, Wooster, Medina and Akron. Stake conferences are scheduled twice each year with church leaders speaking on a variety of topics from the gospel of Jesus Christ. For more information about the Church, visit www.mormon.org

The message was simply to ask for mercy from God, be merciful to others and completely trust in Jesus.
