VIDEO: Church Hosts Live Facebook Chat with David Archuleta

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hosted a live Facebook video chat on Tuesday, 24 June, with singer and Latter-day Saint David Archuleta, moderated by Young Women general president Bonnie L. Oscarson and Young Men general president David L. Beck.

The chat was held first in Spanish and then later in English, with Archuleta singing several Church hymns and answering questions on a variety of topics, including his Mormon missionary service in Chile and his personal quest for faith.

Responding to a Lutheran girl from Wisconsin who asked which religious message has universal application across denominational boundaries, Archuleta said he noticed during his missionary service that everyone he met sought love and acceptance.

"To get to know people and see them missing [love] and looking for it and then finding it, being able to be there and help them along in finding that through the gospel of Jesus Christ, through His teachings, and them gaining that desire to love other people more because they're finding themselves and loving themselves, was something I saw in everybody. Everybody was looking for that."
