Elder & Sister Uchtdorf

"So on Monday we had the chance to see Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf. It was so awesome to hear him speak. He spoke to all four Sao Paulo missions about several things, including the importance of repentance, scripture study, enduring to the end, Preach My Gospel, how the missionaries found his wife Harriet, and many other things, leaving us with the one thing that only he could do at the chapel that day - an Apostolic Blessing. I loved it. It just confirms that the Church is true. I love the reconfirmations I get over and over on my mission. Elder Uchtdorf's wife is pretty cool as well, really energetic and she read some great quotes from past apostles and prophets. The fireside was excellent. Its hard to express in an email."

Elder Dieter Friedrich Uchtdorf was sustained as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 2 October 2004. He has served as a General Authority since April 1994, when he was called as a member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. In April 1996 he was called as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, and he served as a member of the Presidency of the Seventy from August 2002 until he received his current calling.

Elder Uchtdorf married Harriet Reich on 14 December 1962, and they were sealed in the Bern Switzerland Temple. They are the parents of two children and have five grandchildren.
