  • Youth Speakers:  Nakea Hanohano & Erin Cullen:  Nakea bore his testimony and Erin spoke about faith which "comes by righteousness" and "is the first principle of the Gospel." 
  • Adult speakers:  Ruth & Moses Bergao, Herman Kanahele.  The Bergaos are former members of the ward who have moved to Utah and are back on Oahu for a visit. Brother Kanahele is a former bishop of the ward and is now high priest group leader.  All spoke about talks that stood out to them from the recent General Conference.  Sister Bergao referred to President Uchtdorf's talk "Forget Me Not," Brother Bergao spoke about the importance of "Standing in Holy Places" and Brother Kanahele made reference to talks by Boyd K. Packer ("Counsel to Youth"), Henry B. Eyring ("A Witness") , and Robert D. Hales ("Waiting Upon the Lord:  Thy Will Be Done").  Very good talks today.
