Local Latter-Day Saints To Celebrate Prophet's 95th Birthday

Tuesday, September 3, 2019
Local members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the greater Chattanooga area will join with members from around the world to celebrate President Russell M. Nelson’s 95th birthday.  The celebration will be held Friday, Sept. 6 at 10 p.m. in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The event will be broadcast live in eight languages and on various channels including BYUtv and at churchofjesuschrist.org.  
 
Ruth Todd, a former news anchorwoman, and Elder S. Gifford Nielsen of the Seventy, a former professional quarterback, will emcee the celebration.  The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square will perform. Other featured artists include Donny Osmond, Nathan Pacheco, GENTRI, The Bonner Family and Family Four.    
 
According to officials, “The birthday event will celebrate the influence of the Savior in the life of President Nelson and his lifelong service in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Videos will focus on how his career, family and ministry have shaped who he is as a special witness of Jesus Christ.”
 
President Nelson was sustained and set apart as the 17th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 2018.  Since 1984, he served as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.  Prior to his call to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, he was an internationally renowned heart surgeon and was part of a group that designed the first ever heart-lung machine that made open heart surgery possible.  
 
“President Nelson has served as president of the Society for Vascular Surgery, a director of the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and chairman of the Council on Cardiovascular Surgery for the American Heart Association.”  He is also the author of “numerous chapters in medical textbooks” and has received the Heart of Gold Award from the American Heart Association, the Golden Plate Award from the American Academy of Achievement and a citation for International Service from the American Heart Association.  He has been awarded honorary professorships from three universities in the People’s Republic of China and is listed in Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in Religion.    
 
"President Nelson serves today as the Lord’s prophet for the world, and the world is invited to celebrate his 95th birthday," officials said.
