LDS Church members anticipate conference weekend

SALT LAKE CITY, (ABC 4 Utah) – This weekend members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from all over the world will have their eyes on Salt Lake City.
SALT LAKE CITY, (ABC 4 Utah) – This weekend members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from all over the world will have their eyes on Salt Lake City.

The church is holding its 183rd Semiannual General Conference.

Church leaders will be addressing members here in Utah and across the globe.

"It's just my faith and what I believe in," said church member, Ticey Hadley.

A chance to hear the words and guidance of their prophet and other church leaders...

"I rely on the words of the prophets and I know what they are telling us is what we need to be doing in our everyday lives,” said Hadley.

"We like to listen, to hear of their wisdom. We look at their words as wisdom and ways we can better our lives and find comfort in this world," said Eric Andrews, a member of the church.

20,000 plus will see it live at the Conference Center, others will see it at local meetinghouses.
The church broadcasts the sessions all over the world to millions of members.
While some dress up in their Sunday best, others opt for the comforts of home.

"Got two little kids, so we try to watch it at home on TV," said Hadley.

Famous Mormon couple, Mitt and Ann Romney are in town this weekend as well, but Ann says this time around you won't see them at the conference center either...

"We haven't seen our grand children in a while, I think Mitt and I want to be on the floor, wrapped up in a snuggly blanket with our grand children watching conference," said Romney.

The Romney’s and others will be with family, taking in a message of peace in a troubled world.

"We always love it, we're always inspired by it," said Romney.

Sometimes surprised by it, recent sessions have revealed big news like temple expansion and lowering the mission age. Something members say they take in stride.

"I don't usually try to anticipate big announcements. I figure if there is going to be we will hear it," said Andrews.

Two general sessions will be held Saturday and Sunday at 10 AM and 2 PM. The priesthood session is Saturday night at 6.
