Elder Bruce C. Hafen Speaks on Same-Sex Attraction

On Saturday, Elder Bruce C. Hafen, of the Seventy, spoke to the Evergreen International Conference in Salt Lake City. Evergreen International is a resource for Latter-day Saints who experience same-sex attraction, but it is not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
