Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why are so many GA and apostles speaking at devotionals at Byu? When I was there we were lucky to get a member of the 70.

Dear M. Name Here,

I'm not sure, really. My best guess is that it's because they can't travel much, and BYU lends itself well to being COVID conscious. It could also be that we need it all the more now, but really, I think devotionals from Apostles have the same chance of being impactful in a student's life as devotionals from anyone else. I guess related, though, is that BYU devotionals are available to non-BYU students, and it can be a way to access the Apostles even if they can't come to your stake (or country).
