Mormon President Russell M. Nelson delivered a devotional speech to an estimated 68,000 Mormons on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.

It is believed to be largest church gathering in Arizona at one location.

The 94-year-old Nelson just finished his first year as the faith's president. He inherited the top post of the Utah-based faith with 16 million members worldwide after the previous president died in January 2018.

Arizona is a major hub for members of the faith with 428,000 members and six temples.
