“[The photograph] had taken months to get there and [Elder Groberg] knew instantly it would help the woman understand the principle he was trying to explain,” Sister Groberg said. “So the picture had its own mission. I had no idea that it would have a purpose like that.”

Sister Groberg said the incident strengthened her testimony of the Lord’s guiding hand in our lives.

“So much of our life, we don’t really know the purposes or plans of the Lord but we know what the Lord has for us but we know he wants our eternal happiness,” Sister Groberg said.

Elder Groberg illustrated the point of gratitude with a clip where Feki, the young Elder Groberg’s companion, tells how the blessings he received when his family accepted the gospel.

“Even though he didn’t know the discussions, [Feki] was a wonderful, wonderful person,” Elder Groberg said. “He had deep gratitude for the gospel.”

Elder Groberg said the gospel brings blessings we cannot have without it.

“The gospel can do things that all the wisdom of [the world] cannot,” Elder Groberg said. “I deeply appreciate the work of counselors, psychologists and sociologist and those that do so much good in so many ways. I know the Lord helps them … but I want you to know that there is nothing more powerful than the gospel of Jesus Christ in changing hearts and in changing minds.”

He illustrated the point of trusting the Lord with a clip showing the young Elder Groberg nearly drowning after his boat capsized in a storm.

“I started to sink for what may well have been the last time,” Elder Groberg said, recalling the experience. “I was praying all the time. I think I had complete trust in the Lord. I remember thinking ‘Well, if this is the end that means it is the Lord’s will.’ I didn’t want it; I was fighting it, but I was reconciled.”

He said the memory of Jean helped him survive the storm and that he decided to marry Jean while swimming in the storm.

Elder and Sister Groberg then opened the meeting for questions. After several questions from the congregation, the meeting concluded with a hymn.

Elder Groberg served his mission in Tonga and nearby islands from 1954-1957. He married Jean Sabin soon after and they have 11 children. He has served as a General Authority since 1976 and became an Emeritus General Authority following his release from the First Quorum of the Seventy in 2005.

Elder Groberg wrote an autobiographical account of his mission to Tonga titled “In the Eye of the Storm.” The 2001 movie starring Christopher Gorham and Anne Hathaway was based on the book, which was later renamed after the movie.
